It interests me how people can leave an aftertaste of themselves. For instance, I spent the evening chatting online with TJ, and — for perhaps the hundreth time — I’ve noticed that she leaves me feeling clean, bouyant, optimistic. Yet, those feelings can be in sharp contrast to what certain other people leave me with. Rush Limbaugh might be the worse for that. Almost every time I listen to him — even for just a quarter hour — I come away feeling a bit dirty or in need of a shower. Does anyone else notice these things? Or am I once again being delusional?
