The Rush Limbaugh Arrest

There is no good news in the arrest of Rush Limbaugh, who reportedly attempted to buy as much as $10,000 a week of the highly addictive drug oxycontin. It is a sign of a life way out of control. And his on-air comments attacking the once use of marijuana by President Clinton or his comments that drug users should be thrown in jail are merely the comments of someone in deep denial that they were a drug addict that even lied to themself about the serious nature of their problems.

Alcohol or drug abuse is sad in any person. And hopefully Limbaugh will get the help he desperately needs. But at the same time he has lost credibility as a spokesman for "traditional" or "conservative" values and his opinions no longer hold the weight of any credibility. It is time for him to get his life in order and leave America's airwaves.
