Zev Chafets' biography of Rush Limbaugh, An Army of One, makes one thing clear: Chafets received extensive cooperation from Limbaugh and from Limbaugh associates and employees.

Probably none of that input came from the employee referenced here. To explain: Back on Friday, June 13, 2003, after publishing a column in local DC newspapers titled "An open letter to Rush Limbaugh," I received this email from a reader, with the subject line "Rush Limbaugh":

Margie,

I just thought you would like to know a little tidbit of gossip about the subject you are writing about. Every day that I listen to his show (not everyday who could take that?) I hear hatred spewed forth about anything and everthing that doesn't jibe with his ideaology. Calling Gephart "little dick" saying John Kerry "looks French" could be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. So I don't feel bad about outing him on this; Rush is a junkie.

[A former employee] worked for years [for Limbaugh and then-wife Marta Fitzgerald] and Rush made him sign a no-tell agreement before his departure. I didn't sign anything. Well Rush was doing over $2000.00 a week worth of oxycotin pain killers, which he "scored" illegally from a West Palm Beach dealer. Normally I wouldn't pass this kind of info around but you know what? Screw it and screw him and his hate. This is the truth Marge and I am not telling to print it or nothing, just letting you know."
