Another tasty morsel of good news

They're more like crumbs, but I'll take what I can get:

Limbaugh dumped for liberal show

A southern Vermont-based radio station will trade in the rhetoric of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk show hosts for the liberal commentary of Air America next week.

WKVT-AM 1490 in Brattleboro will replace four of its weekday syndicated conservative talk shows on Jan. 17 with programs from the fledgling liberal radio network Air America, which launched in March. . .

. . . That's not good news for Milton Eaton of Brattleboro, who worked as secretary of development for former Gov. Richard Snelling, a Republican. Eaton said he listens to [recovering drug addict Rush] Limbaugh two or three times a week when he was in his car running errands.

"It's really disappointing to hear that," Eaton said. "There is such a liberal media down here that [recovering drug addict] Rush was a refreshing change."

[Hehhehheh. They flushed "Falafel" O'Reilly, too. Any of you midwesterners who read the Sandwich care to call your local talk radio station? I know you're out there...]
