Rush fans

I sent Wil Wheaton an e-mail message a few years ago. He’d written a blog posting in which he said, “I hate Rush fans.” The context wasn’t entirely clear but it seemed that he was talking about fans of Rush Limbaugh rather than fans of the musical group. Still, I couldn’t just let it be so I wrote him a brief message.

Dude, don’t hate the Rush fans…assuming you mean the musical group. We’re nice, dammit. If you mean Rush Limbaugh, well that’s something else entirely…

He replied later the same day.

Dude. I am hurt. Seriously. Hurt in my soul. I LOVE Rush The Band…

I won’t quote what he said about Limbaugh, however.
