Re "Limbaugh Returns to Air After Stay in Drug Rehab," Nov. 18: Rush
Limbaugh immediately reassures his listeners that his brief stint in
rehab (as opposed to the lengthy jail time he feels drug abusers
should get) did not turn him into a "linguini-spined liberal." How sad
and pathetic that he clings to his narrow-minded ignorance and
hypocrisy in a misfired attempt to save face.

I think most people were simply hoping that the dead lump in his chest
that used to be his heart would somehow come back to life. I was
hoping that he was capable of developing some compassion for those
whom he directed his hatred at, now that he has walked in their shoes.
I guess I greatly underestimated the power of insecurity and hate.

Oh, and by the way, it wasn't a "linguini-spined liberal" who became
addicted to black-market narcotics due to an inability to deal with
reality. It was Limbaugh, a human being with human weaknesses, who
needed a helping hand just like those who he demands be thrown into
