Over here you can write whatever you want to. The only trouble getting somebody that will read it. – April 18, 1933 Will Rogers
Sometimes we in the U.S. forget just how good we have it. As Will says over here we can write whatever we want. That is definitely not the case in many parts of the world today.

The most “syndicated bird” around today is probably Rush Limbaugh. It is reported that he makes somewhere around $30 million a year doing what he does! And what does he do exactly? His only literary output seems to be his constant ranting. He continues to say the most outrageous things over and over again. He hates almost everything and everyone and goes out of his way to let everyone know that. He would be at an utter loss if he actually had to sit down and write something with any compassion or any level of fact or truth.
Even when I do it from a very humble stance I believe that my writing is far and above anything Rush has ever accomplished. So why is it I get paid exactly $0.00 for what I say and he gets probably $100/word for all the drivel that comes out of his often vulgar mouth! So, yes I find it heart breaking what this syndicated bird gets away with.
But what do I know….
