Prayers for Rush Limbaugh’s friends, loved ones, and others this will hit hard:
Also, this Christian music pioneer passed away yesterday (heard about it on K-LOVE today):
Let me just be blunt: Death sucks.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:1-4, ESV).
Amen, come Lord Jesus.
I’ll add tweets, articles, etc. about both men below as I run into ones I especially appreciated.
That's the real measure of Rush's impact. He helped so many people realize they were not alone, even as the mainstream media labored to make them feel isolated and hopeless. He understood that totalitarians overwhelm and dominate ordinary people by making them *feel* surrounded.

“To modify Rush’s tag line: Talent returned to God.”

So I will get back to posting news stories tomorrow. Sorry been so lean today and yesterday. Tonight I will join my dear friend @seanhannity.
I just can't stop crying. It comes in waves -often unexpectedly. Heartbroken.

The way we talk about the dead matters. Grave dancing leaves a bad taste in peoples’ mouths because, for a long time, we had all kindof agreed that speaking ill of the dead (who can no longer defend themselves) was uncouth.
Apparently, that consensus is gone.

In the 90s I was a host on a talk radio station in LA, the same that aired Rush. I was president of LA NOW, & the liberal wkend host when he visited the station. He was so vilified by my then-crowd, I expected a monster. Instead, I met a remarkable, kind and encouraging man… 1/
