Rush is making a chunk of change off of his NY penthouse. I think I read that it’s selling for just under $11million. Good for him! He’s signed a few paychecks over his career. He’s running a company, or should I say, an empire and he’s been instrumental in providing a few jobs, here and there, unlike our president.
The Clintons claim to millions – and an estate reminiscent of the Kennedy compound sans the beach and a few dozen or so kids and grandkids- is thanks to a couple of likely ghost-written books and well placed connections.
(By the way, I’ve read none of their books and plan not to. Autobiographies are written only to glorify the auto part of the story. Usually, biographies are more fair to the party in question.)
I found these 2 stories on Drudge today to be really interesting and very juxtaposed in position.

I caught an interview with him on Fox and Friends, but I wanted to add credibility by posting this from Wikapedia…

Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (born December 13, 1948 in Washington, D.C.) is an American guitarist, known for his stints in the rock bands Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers during the 1970s. More recently, he has been working as a defense consultant and chairs a Congressional Advisory Board on missile defense.
So if you realize that Steally Dan’s name came from one of the band members girlfriend’s toy catalog, then you understand how he might have become a missile expert. Hmmmmm…
“Yeah! Let’s call on that missile expert that used to play for that band, what’s the name… The Doobie Brothers?”

Actually, and it’s been a long time since I read it, but I think Steely Dan was the name of a “toy” in Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I could be wrong, too.
I saw Baxter on RedEye but didn’t get to watch much of the show.
I love those 2 bands!

Hope not to offend anyone but this song kills me! I guess it’s the nurses’ humor coming out or something.

SamH says your brother is into some good music.
Hope he’s not scared of heights! 🙂

Rush never said anything on his show about selling his apartment in NYC. Maybe NYC will stop trying to tax him.

Good afternoon Roxy!
Do you mind? May I play some tunes?
Here is one of the first known music recordings using feedback.
