It seems to be a day for confessions. I have my own dark confessions. Years ago I needed to work late at night. When a daily dose of 700 Club failed to keep my blood boiling and keep me awake I turned to stronger alternatives. That's right I have listened to Rush from time to time to keep my blood boiling. The interesting thing is that his statement today contradicts the ads he's been running for Select Comfort. The ads say that his mattress has solved his back pain. The statement today says the pain never went away. So aside from being drummed out of ESPN for his inappropriate remarks and being investigated for buying illegal drugs it seems Rush and the Select Comfort company can now expect a call from the Federal Trade Commission.
