RUSH: Jack in Macon, Georgia, great to have you. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, thank you for taking my call. How are you?
RUSH: I’m well, sir. Ready for the weekend but doing well.
CALLER: As am I my friend. I’m a long-time listener, third-time caller. I first listened to you in Richmond, Virginia, in the Year of Our Lord 1994. (pause)
CALLER: Are you there, Rush?
RUSH: Yeah. Time is going by here.
CALLER: Time is of the essence.

If the perp doesn’t go to church, you’ll never hear about it. But if the perp did, or if the perp’s family is a bunch of holy-rollers, you’ll never hear the end of it.
