Regarding "Limbaugh Turns Himself In On Painkiller Charge" (front
page, April 29):

Rush Limbaugh has reached a pretty favorable plea bargain regarding
abuses relating to his prescription drug dependency. He is paying
$30,000 - his lawyer says it's to defray the cost of the investigation
- - which represents something like two hours' income for the radio host.

What do you want to bet that if it had been a Democrat or liberal in
exactly the same situation, Rush would be on the radio proclaiming
that a bleeding-heart, weak-kneed prosecutor had given a dangerous,
immoral criminal a slap on the wrist instead of throwing the slime in
prison where he belongs?

I'm not saying that would have been the proper punishment for
Limbaugh. But you know that's what he would have said.
