This sounds like a joke, but sadly it's not much of an exaggeration, if it can be called an exaggeration at all.
Several members of the all-Democrat Broward County Commission are considering no longer airing hurricane warnings on one of the area's most popular radio stations, because -- are you ready? -- the station airs Rush Limbaugh's show.
Now, in a world where common sense prevails, one would think airing emergency warnings on a station with as many listeners as Rush has would be ideal, enabling as many local residents as possible to receive critical information during an emergency.
The Broward County Commissioner said of Rush and other conservative programs, "They have every right to speak, but we don't have to do business with them."
Since when is saving your constituents' lives "business"?
It appears the folks running Broward County would be happier to see Rush's conservative audience dead in the next disaster.
The Miami Herald reports it looks like the Commissioner's attempt to drop working with the station will fail.
Rush sums up the brouhaha.
