Larry Elder

"Larry, you should not make the silly noises on the air while commenting on an issue. If only you knew how bad you sound you wouldn't do it. . . . Yuk, you sounds [sic] like a girl, in heat. Please ask yourself, why do I make these silly comments." -- Jackie

"The problem with you Reich wingers -- when the Whitehouse 'idiot Savant' lies you can't separate 'The Wheat From the Chaff!'" -- AZ

"You have been saying that same old tired crap about Jesse Jackson and the Hymie town comment since you have been on the radio. That is over! It happened sixteen years ago! Unbelievable! I know that most of your ignorant ass listeners don't know that and they repeat your stupid, inane, and just plain pathetic comments as if they actually have some credibility. You are right about things being unbelievable. You are the one that is unbelievable. Calling you an Uncle Tom is much too kind. There are very few (if any) pathetic OREOS like you. Pitiful!!!!!! Why does the white man need an OREO crusader to defend them [sic]?" -- Anonymous

"Face the facts, sh-t for brains, no-one uses the 'N-word' more than the black community, so you can shove your double standard right up your ignorant ass! You haven't got the brains God gave dog sh-t, and you are going to burn in Hell for your support of George Bush and his unholy invasion of Iraq. You've been wrong about the war from day one, because you are indeed, a very stupid man, and stupid is as stupid does. Go to hell now, and take your 'N-word' with you, sh-t for brains." -- Brad

Now, how does this make me feel? Years ago, a friend sent a poem which I framed and placed, for daily viewing, on the wall in my bathroom:

You have no enemies, you say?
Alas, my friend, the boast is poor;
He who has mingled in the fray
Of duty, that the brave endure,
Must have made foes! If you have none,
Small is the work that you have done.
You've hit no traitor on the hip,
You've dashed no cup from perjured lip,
You've never turned the wrong to right,
You've been a coward in the fight.
-- Charles MacKay (1814-1889)

Happy New Year. Here's to an even better 2007.
