Don't drink and compute. That's the advice I always give myself, which I have promptly ignored.
But a couple of thoughts tonight as I swill a few adult beverages.
I lost a job today, but I didn't lose a child.I didn't lose a limb. And I didn't lose my passion for our troops.
My great friend Debbie Lee, whose son Marc Alan Lee, the first Navy Seal to die in the fighting in Iraq, called me to console me about being laid-off today.
I was thunder-struck by her deep generosity, AND the fact that everything in life must be kept in perspective.
Yes, I was laid off and I am sorry to be leaving all my friends from ABC/Citadel Broadcasting. I have some personal grieving to do. And I lost the ability to speak to millions of listeners at KSFO, and on the Internet. (Temporarily.)
But I will NEVER forget the true loss and grief of Gold Star Families who have suffered real agony in the name of our Country, those who fight for the rights of all us to live, breathe and enjoy our freedom.
I want to thank all the KSFO listeners who have supported our causes over the years, and urge them to stay tuned to Lee Rodgers and Officer Vic, as well as my friend Brian Sussman.
I love you all and I'm grateful for nearly 15 years of fellowship, friendship, passion and committment.
I'm not done yet --we've got a lot more work ahead of us.
