I've listened to the first hour or so of Rush today to see what he'd have to say. He's making me a little nervous. Yes, he still sounds like himself, but there has already been a disturbing amount of talk about people "taking responsibility for their own happiness." He also said of those who've volunteered for service in the Armed Forces that "we can't live their lives for them, and they can't live our lives for us." Blech.

Hopefully after a few days the more self-conscious aspects of this rehab will have worked themselves out, and the show will stop sounding like Dr. Laura. I'm glad he's back and doing well, but if it turns into the Stuart Smalley show, he's going to be in trouble. What I suspect, though, is that by this time next week the show will sound exactly as it always has.
