The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday declined to consider an appeal from commentator Rush Limbaugh claiming his privacy was violated when his medical records were seized for an investigation of whether he illegally purchased painkillers....

But, Limbaugh has a very prominent platform which he could be using to advocate changes to the laws along these lines, which he doesn't do.

I agree with Mr. Atrios. The real crime is Rush's hypocrisy on this issue. I had to laugh at Dick Morris the other day defending Rush on The Factor, saying that Limbaugh had "conquered" his addiction. No one conquers addiction. (Definition -conquer- To defeat or subdue by force, especially by force of arms.) Anyone in recovery will tell you that a person surrenders to his or her addiction so that they may have a chance to become free of it.
