Say What?
Just read in People magazine that Rush Limbaugh is going deaf. People magazine has run two articles on this. One recounts how Limbaugh announced that he was losing his hearing on his radio show and quotes him as saying, "All I've lost is my ability to hear, but it doesn't mean I've lost my ability to communicate." Another describes the drug treatment Limbaugh is undertaking to fight the hearing loss. I don't agree with Limbaugh on most fronts -- but I'm curious what will happen to Limbaugh's show -- he can recognize sound, but he can't identify it -- and what going deaf means to someone who's life has been built on radio broadcasting. Maybe he should go into the theater.
