From a friend of an emailer to The BRAD BLOG...
I know I don't talk to you very often, but now I feel compelled to speak. This year, you took my favorite screenwriter, Nora Ephron; my favorite visionary, Steve Jobs; my favorite country musician, Earl Scruggs; my kids' favorite author, Maurice Sendak; and my favorite singer, Whitney Houston. I just wanted you to know that my favorite radio commentator is Rush Limbaugh.
P.S. Another version of this was published Sunday here. So the provenence is questionable. Nonetheless, I thought it was cruelly amusing anyway.
