Could Rush Limbaugh Retire?

That's the speculation in this morning's Tom Taylor column...

It’s not as crazy as it sounds – Presumably Premiere won’t offer the same kind of $400 million eight-year deal it did in 2008, just before the economy rattled and rolled. Limbaugh recently turned 64, and he might not want an eight-year deal, anyhow. One talk-radio pro says “I’m betting that when the big renewals come up, Howard Stern will renew with SiriusXM, because it’s the easiest thing to do. But Rush may just decide to retire.”

If that happens, look for the sun to be a little brighter, the air to be a little cleaner, little birdies to be a little chirpier, and Americans to hold hands from coast to coast singing "Oh Happy Day" by the Edwin Hawkins singers. A great song, by the way.
