I think Rush was *allegedly* popping Oxycontin. . .

I never thought I'd be involved in a dispute about what prescription painkillers were abused by Rush Limbaugh. It's fun, though!

You're right that I should have written "Oxycontin," only so as to not cause the confusion I've caused. My position, however, is defensible.

According to one article: “The investigation began when the radio host was turned-in by his former housekeeper, Wilma Cline, who claimed that she had supplied Limbaugh with prescription drugs for four years. . . She said that Limbaugh was hooked on OxyContin, Lorcet and hydrocodone, the later being one of the drugs associated with sudden hearing loss."

Vicodin is that last one, hydrocodone (although combined with acetaminophen). Since it's associated with hearing loss, I associate it with Rush Limbaugh.

Defensible indeed.

I was being an annoying law student.
