Or, as they’re calling it now, Syfy.
Hat tip- n2l.
Today is a day of mixed emotions.
Sadness for all those who sacrificed their lives for this great nation, and pride in honoring them for doing so.
They gave us all of their tomorrows and we are blessed by them.
I will never forget what the many men and women have given us. All should.
Early in my sales career, I was driving down Hwy 49, somewhere between Jackson and Hattiesburg, listening to the AM talk channel. Windshield time is one of those things that salesmen both curse and love at the same time. But, that’s a story for a different day. On this day in the pre-cell phone era of the late 80’s, listening to talk radio was a regular activity for me. As I listened, I wondered where the regular guy, Michael Jackson was.
Some new guy was on. He was good. Real good. Funny, smart, pompous (in a humorous way), confident in his conservatism, and absolutely comfortable behind the radio microphone, Rush Limbaugh became a part of my week, and I was, in short order, hooked.
And, even though windshield time hadn’t become something to actually look forward to, it had become something bearable during the middle of the work day.
Chances are, you probably remember the first time you heard Rush Limbaugh on the radio, too.
I received my copy of Zev Chafets new biography, Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One yesterday. (thanks, Christy)
I’m kind of hoping it rains all weekend so I won’t feel guilty about spending the time reading instead of being outside enjoying BBQ, camping, and tubing down the Bogue Chitto River. Kind of.
Frankly, though, rain or shine, I’m looking forward to getting started on this one, and I’ll have a report for you sometime next week.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Did you see Joe Wiesenthal’s one-word reaction to Dow theorist Richard Russell in today’s Business Insider?
Do your friends a favor. Tell them to “batten down the hatches” because there’s a HARD RAIN coming. Tell them to get out of debt and sell anything they can sell (and don’t need) in order to get liquid. Tell them that Richard Russell says that by the end of this year they won’t recognize the country. They’ll retort, “How the dickens does Russell know — who told him?” Tell them the stock market told him.
