A Two If By Tea Fan in Academia


RUSH:  Here's Donna in Meridian, Idaho.  Hi, Donna.  Glad you waited.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  This is Donna.  My husband and I love your tea.  We call it our private stock.

RUSH:  Well, I love that.  Thank you very much.  What's your favorite flavor?

CALLER:  Mine is just the sweet tea.  My husband has tried your peach.  He loves it.  But normally we order just sweet and unsweetened.

RUSH:  Cool.

CALLER:  It is very good, very good.  I called because I taught in academia, and I would have my colleagues and students quote the New York Times or CNN or NBC. And then I would quote you, and they would roll their eyes or snicker or make snide comments, and they just tended to marginalize me, until finally I said, "Don't talk about my boyfriend that way."

RUSH:  (laughing)  How old are these young skulls full of mush?

CALLER:  Well, they were in junior college.  They were usually freshmen and sophomore.

RUSH:  Why were they rolling their eyes?  They didn't even know what they were rolling their eyes about, did they?

CALLER:  Yeah, yeah.  That's what I thought.  And of course my colleagues knew what they were doing, but the minute I started saying don't talk about my boyfriend that way, they'd shut up and they'd listen to me.

RUSH:  No kidding?  That's all it took?

CALLER:  Yeah.

RUSH:  And then they started listening to you, and then, well, I'm sure their minds began to change then after that?

CALLER:  Well, you know, it's academia.

RUSH: (laughing) I guess that didn't happen.

CALLER:  No, I wish.

RUSH:  Well, look, hey, Donna, hang on.  I want Mr. Snerdley to get your address.  You tell him your favorite tea, 'cause I want to send you and your husband each a case.
