I suppose it is possible that Rush did not trust doctors to keep giving him the meds he craved; after all, lately doctors are not likely to be later blamed for feeding the habits of celebrities and leading to their deaths. So many stories have come out. So perhaps getting OTHER people's prescriptions would have been his only way.
It sounds like Marta did NOT know about this.
If they really do have tapes, it's not like people wouldn't recognize that voice.
I would have respect for Rush if he had come on the air and told us he had accidentally gotten in over his head with pain medication. I think we all would have prayed for him and been there for him as he attempted to get help.
However, this sneakiness and illegality is horrendous. We expect so much MORE from Rush. Also, he REPRESENTS us, in some ways. He now makes us all look like phonies. If only he had not gone the illegal route.
Innocent until proven guilty, I need to remind myself, but this looks bad.
My heart is actually sore about this.
Do you realize it would be just as easy to make up a story like this about YOU or ME? First off, the newspaper was given a story. The maid is the one who Rush would sue, and she doesnt have deep pockets. This would be equal to Stephen Glass, making up things. Please dont be so gullible.
