He used to be a fun guy. He sounded happy. I enjoyed driving around at noon listening to him on the AM radio.


But other copied him and he had to become more extreme. He became more self-important and more shrill. He was less fun to listen to. Even I, a casual listener caught him in outright lies. I have not listened in years.


Just by the way, and only partially on topic, the guy’s success was due to his show replacing real-live talk personalities on the radio. Just like Home Depot and Wal*Mart, Rush was part of the movement to drive out the little guy.
