Radio personality Rush Limbaugh told his 20 million listeners today, on air, that he has advanced lung cancer.
Rush can be credited for changing Horry County politics during the Ronald Reagan presidency.
Rush Limbaugh is the sole reason S.C. Senators Luke Rankin and Hugh Leatherman chose to leave the Democratic party and call themselves Republicans.
As it is with all of us, time stops for no man. Rush has been the baby boomers’ voice of reason for those who sit on the political right.

When he decides to give up the “EIB” microphone it is unlikely, however, we will see the star quality of Rush Limbaugh again.
Rush changed everything.
