I am not a Rush Limbaugh fan, but I hope he overcomes his addiction to
painkillers. When he comes back to radio, I hope his addiction
experience will have made him more compassionate and empathetic.

When rock singer Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994, I remember
Rush saying Cobain was "a worthless shred of human debris." Rush said
he had no sympathy for someone who commits suicide. Depression is the
leading cause of suicide, and countless numbers of people from all
walks of life suffer from its mental anguish.

I cannot imagine a person who has been severely depressed ever saying
he/she has no sympathy for someone who committed suicide. America
looks forward to seeing how Limbaugh's addiction experience changes
his life.
