During my years in talk radio I have managed to find other things to do. We'll attribute this to the fact that I am easily bored. From 1977 to 1992, as I said, I practiced law in addition to doing the talk show. Prior to 1977 you could find me working as a jewelry or carpet buyer, an insurance salesman, selling life and casualty insurance, loading trucks, slinging mail at the post office, working in an employment office, writing speeches for the Governor of Georgia and auditing the books overnight at a sleazy motel. I happily retired from the practice of law when I signed with WSB in 1992. This means that I was 47 years old before I ever had less than two jobs.
I live north of Atlanta in the Bright Flight suburbs. When not on the air I like to spend free time playing golf (still a hacker) flying hot air balloons or flying my Mooney Ovation2 or my Super Decathlon around the Southeast. When I feel particularly frisky I like to sit down and write. My first book, "The Terrible Truth About Liberals," will go into its fourth printing this fall ... this time it will be a paperback edition with some additional barrages of insensitivity. I'm presently working on my next book, "Somebody Has Say It." I expect a brutal bidding war from several publishers for that one.
Politics? I'm a confirmed Libertarian. I believe that the principal difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats just want to grow our Imperial Federal Government a bit faster than the Republicans do.
Yes, I'm married. My wife, Donna, doesn't listen to the show. Never has. This is good. My daughter, Laura, uses a fake last name. Another good idea.
Run for office? Well, thanks for asking --- but I'm afraid that the worst possible thing would happen. I would win. That would be a financial disaster for me. I am, however, toying with the idea of running for President on the Libertarian Party ticket after I retire from talk radio. I'll run just once --- and just for the hell of it. If I win, I'll chose the best possible Libertarian Vice President I can, and then I'll resign soon after I'm sworn in. Just give me enough time to get a few trips in on Air Force One, pardon all non-violent drug offenders and to get to know the interns.
Yes, I am available for speaking engagements. And --- no. I'm not free. I'm a confirmed greedy capitalist.
That's enough of an introduction. Oh, by the way. I think that Bill Clinton was the most corrupt and dishonest President we have ever suffered through in this country during my lifetime. If I had to say something nice about him I would say that he is more honest than his wife, and cuter. Well, that's something, I guess.
