Savage Silence

http://www.michaelsavage.wnd.com/
When I switched the radio on last night just after 7:00 and DIDN'T hear the voice of Michael Savage, I turned it off immediately, as I usually do when someone is filling in for the talk show host, and thought nothing else of it. The other evening, the radio was playing "an encore" segment of savage. Nothing seemed amiss.

 The TV was already on one of the ion channels, and "Positive Living" was on - an episode about a broadcast journalist who enhanced his life and focused his goals after taking Landmark courses. A friend of mine took Landmark and she always spoke highly of the program. The TV show was an interesting watch. After that I watched a few cooking shows on Create, then "Person of Interest" and the "new" Sherlock Holmes show.

So this morning, as I clicked through my daily rounds of newsblogs, I was shocked to read that Michael Savage was off the air - in a self-imposed "Radio Silence" mode - sorta like when Art Bell went off the air yeras ago, I thought to myself, "here's a unique voice that cannot be replaced."

 via Associated Press ::: Savage posted a message on his website under the headline "Free at Last!" that said he was free to work with any station or network from now on. He said he "will not be heard on the radio for some time."

 Here is the message ::: "AFTER A GRUELING LEGAL BATTLE THAT COST HIM AND HIS FAMILY DEARLY, MICHAEL SAVAGE CAN ANNOUNCE HE WON! HE IS FREE AT LAST. FREE TO WORK WITH WHOMEVER HE WISHES IN THE RADIO INDUSTRY FROM TODAY FORWARD. MICHAEL WILL NOT BE HEARD ON THE RADIO FOR SOME TIME, BUT YOU CAN KEEP UP WITH HIM BY LOGGING ONTO MICHAELSAVAGE.COM EVERY DAY FOR UPDATES AND BY SUBSCRIBING TO HIS FREE NEWSLETTER AT THE TOP OF HIS WEBSITE."

  1. Gas is above four dollars a gallon.
    Food prices are high and will go
    still higher. People are out of
    work. Prospects for jobs are
    bleak. The number on food stamps
    is at a record high.

    This President has failed to secure
    our borders allowing tens of
    millions of illegal aliens to run
    amok in America, among them
    jihadists who are sworn to destroy
    us.

    Our entire electoral system is
    at risk. Millions of illegals will
    be voting November 6 and the
    votes will be counted electronically
    by a George Soros firm in Spain.

    Our Nation is deeply divided by
    a President who set out to radically
    transform America . A President
    whose divide and conquer strategy
    has brought America to the brink
    of disaster.

    All this and Savage goes silent!
    Oi Vey!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
