Oddly, the first time I heard of Rush was when he was interviewed on
60 Minutes. :-)  Think it was close to 15 years ago now; I'm pretty
certain it was during Bush Sr.'s term of office.  And I don't think
his audience was quite as huge at the time, either.  It's even possible
that the 60 Minutes piece might've gotten him some more listeners...
