RUSH: Don in Lake Ronkonkoma in New York. Hello.
CALLER: Hey. Mega dittos, Rush. Great to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.
CALLER: Hey, listen, do you think there’s a possibility of a future book with Rush Revere and Liberty to time travel into the future to see America after the Obama administration gets done with it?
CALLER: Right. Why not? They don’t need a flux capacitor.
RUSH: You know, I love these people and their creative ideas. That’s an intriguing idea. The problem is, see, if I were to do it, you’re gonna come knocking on the door demanding a royalty payment. You’re gonna sue me for plagiarism or some such thing so we’d have to get a release signed from you. I’m just joking, here. That actually would be intriguing. Maybe not in a Rush Revere, because those are devoted to American history.
But perhaps there’s another vehicle for that. There’s… (interruption) Snerdley said, “What if there’s no America?” There’s always gonna be an America, just like there’s always a France and there’s gonna be a UK. There’s always gonna be an America. It’s just, “What is it going to be?” That’s really what the fight is about. But I appreciate the thought process.
Right now, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, and Rush Revere and the First Patriots, that whole series is time-travel adventures to the past, to actual events in American history. They’re written for 10- to 13-year-olds. You’re actually taken to the events depicted; you are part of the event. Your children, whoever reads the book, that’s what happens.
