If I had a driveway, this is one of those NPR stories that would be a "Driveway Moment" in which I wait to finish listening before parking the car. Instead I paused in the kitchen and listened closely.

I was very touched by Kestenbaum's sadness at his female neighbor's rejection of him. Maybe it's a male/female difference, but it seemed obvious to me that he was a harmless, endearing and somewhat awkward fellow. wHAT a charminbg notion that shared musical interests can quickly lead to friendships. His wife comes down pretty hard on him too, while admitting that she is probably jealous of the mysterious neighbor.

So let me add these tags:

gender differences
endearing naivete
digital fortress
