I’m 28. Rush has always existed, from my point of view, and that gravelly voice was always playing in either the living room radio or the garage radio. Back then, I was too young to care, and didn’t notice the difference between Limbaugh, Hannity, and Levin. I thought it was the same guy, all day long.
Becoming wiser to the world, and developing a preference for Levin’s burning passion, Rush’s wisdom and insight would still never fail to enthrall me. It’s hard to believe he’s gone, and I’m afraid that we’ve lost an irreplaceable beacon. Society is slipping downward, and I fear that fewer and fewer may have the courage to even attempt to stand against the mob like he did.
Rest in piece, Rush Limbaugh, you’ve earned this ultimate profit break from the world, itself.
