Farewell, Mr. Boortz

Mr. Towery, you are 100% correct. Boortz will be missed, and quite frankly, I don't see either Herman Cain or Eric Erickson being able to fill his shoes. Both are very astute politically, but they do not have Boortz's sense of humor.

For my money, the single most talented voice in the modern history of talk radio is retiring later this month. Not "one of" the most talented -- the most talented.

Neal Boortz began his career in radio while in college at Texas A&M, but his long stint in commercial radio started as one of the many individuals he would, over the years to follow, continually cut off: opinionated callers. Boortz in the late 1960s was a frequent caller to a local Atlanta talk show, and when the host died unexpectedly, he went from brash caller to brash host.
