That's A Hell Of A Lot Of Tea

From Album 5
$22 million over four years? As Upton Sinclair said, "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it."


  1. This is an honest comment. Back when Limpburger first was gaining some popularity, the old CompuServe internet days, I still had an old TRS-80 with 300 baud modem, some of the folks I talked with on a "cb" channel mentioned listening to Rush. To me, Rush was and always will be a three piece band from the Great White North. Yeah, I am still a fan of their music. The radio rush is a clown of the worst sort and unfortunately has many followers. I would never consider being called a "ditto head" as any sort of compliment. I see it as an insult, but then I do try and actually think for myself.
    Nice to see that advertisers DO listen to feedback and some have dumped these hate radio clowns.

  2. I've never understood Limpburger's (good description) appeal. None of the Madison radio stations carried him, but I tuned into his TV show...and geez -- just...boring, bloviating...and flaccid. THAT'S what they were listening to? Christ -- at least Savage, Hannity et al are raging assholes, so there's a modest freak show element of entertainment there.

    And yeah, it's good that some advertiser's are giving up the ghost...too bad the Koch's are a virtual bottomless money pit...

    Have a good weekend, Charlie. Cool on the TRS 80...years ago I had a step up...a Tandy 1000...I added the extra floppy drive myself. Hard disk? What was that? Haha.
