In Memory and appreciation, we lost a patriot - Terry Anderson
Once in a while, we are lucky enough to have SPECIAL people cross our paths. Seven years ago, I turned the radio on to the unforgettable voice of Terry Anderson admonishing the 'stupid people of America!' Every Sunday night, many of us tuned in. We were entertained, we were taught and we became friends with one of the most patriotic activists to ever grace this nation.
To those of you never lucky enough to know this fine man, you missed out!
All his shows are archived. They are timeless. Listen and learn.
Terry leaves an emptiness that will not soon be filled. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Thank you for sharing this brave, kind man with us. He will not be forgotten.
As for the current political climate....as Terry always said,
"If You Ain't Mad, You Ain't Payin' Attention!"
Thanks to Barbara Coe for informing us .

Some personal information.
[snip]Terry is survived by his wife Melanie, who was also his high school sweetheart, two sons, and two grandchildren. He was born in Oakland, Calif., but moved to South Los Angeles when he was a youngster and lived there ever since. After starting his radio show in November 2000, Terry would have broadcast for the 500th time in a few weeks.
He’s known for his well-prepared opening monologues (see one of his famous monologues here and watch him explaining how illegal immigration has harmed MacArthur Park here), which he often spent 20-30 hours a week to prepare.
In 10 years, he never missed a show, although he was pre-empted a few times by his home station on very short notice.
In the weeks leading up to his death, Terry Anderson had J.D. Hayworth, Republican challenger to John McCain, and Russell Pearce, author of Arizona’s new immigration enforcement law, on his radio program. In his “Clown of the Week” segment, he blasted the Obama Administration for their decision to sue the state of Arizona as well as DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and head of the Los Angeles Archdiocese Cardinal Roger Mahony.”
