19. I've always wondered...

When Rush Limbaugh was in his last months... really ill...

I thought out loud, Why don't rich people with lots of enemies just disappear?

Imagine the fun Limbaugh could have had by disappearing from public view and spending his last months in... I don't know... maybe Dubai? Secretly... no death announcement, no funeral announcement... just business as usual.

Have a press office employee release monthly newsletters "from" Rush... Hell, even film and record "news stories" far in advance. He could tape endorsement audio for future candidates... or comments for events that may or may not happen.

It only takes a few minutes to record Congratulations to all 30 baseball teams...

Limbaugh could have released a "Congrats Texas Rangers" audio message just last month... years after secret death...

And eventually AI could produce video of him smoking his cigar, in perfect health making whatever crass comment of the day...

There would never be "satisfaction" of ones death... they'd just linger... forever.

Is this in addition to people dancing in the streets with happiness? LOL patricia92243 Nov 2023 #1
