I believe it was Feb 24, 2007. Art said on the air (after a heated exchange with a 'truther') that if he ever found strong evidence that the US Gov knew about & chose not to intervene, or participated in the tragedies of 9/11 he would leave the country.

So he believed/believes very strongly in the official account of those events. If he discovered that the official story, or elements of that story are false, then he would have suffered from a massive disillusionment. If the official account is true, then the realization that a huge portion of his audience was speaking in nearly heretical terms against the US Government, and that his own show had spent years fostering, validating, and indeed profiting to some extent from the very same 'wingnut' worldview would have likely been just as unacceptable.

All of this on the heels of the Hale Bopp and Y2K debacles, and of course not forgetting the various lawsuits, and the passing of his partner - it's a lot to absorb.

That's just a guess. But the wingnut thing was a turning point of some sort - no different than Zuckerberg referring to the people who use his website as dumbf*cks for giving up their privacy to him. It's an event horizon. Once we crossed it(Art and the listeners), we could never go back.

[EDIT: Turns out it was February 14th not the 24th, 2007]

''On many occasions Art you said that you could never believe your government would ever be involved or behind with getting 3000 people killed in the twin towers''

''That's right Kathy and I still don't.''

I interrupted and said ''Well, Art, it's not Our government anymore! It hasn't been for a long time!''

Art immediately cut me off. But since I was taping the show, I got to hear the rest of what he had to say to me...

"And if you believed that, Kathy, I gotta wonder why are you still here!? There are plenty of flights leaving the United States. Plane fares are quite reasonable now!

If I believed for one minute my government was involved in any way, I'd go back to Manila, and stay there. I would not live in a country that would do that to its own citizens. I'd be so gone, Kathy.''

First I'm surprised he even responded to my email. Maybe he's getting less and less the longer he stays away from radio?

But here is something he apparently has automatically come up at the bottom of every email he sends. I think it's really funny:


"PRIVILEGE AND CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE
This e-mail is confidential and should not be used by anyone who is not the original intended recipient.

It should not be photocopied, transmitted via walkie-talkie, CB radio, satellite dish, cable TV, overhead projector, smoke signal, Morse code, pig Latin, sign language, short hand, or any other means.

This e-mail is not to be ridiculed, mocked, judged in a competition, or read aloud in funny accents while wearing fake mustaches and/or hats of any sort including, but not limited to, bandanas. Do not taunt or provoke this e-mail.

If you have received this e-mail in error, it's probably because I am so consumed by self-importance that I wasn't paying any attention to whom I addressed it."

Doesn't it make you miss Art's sense of humor?

I have to assume he is sufficiently wealthy to live the lifestyle he wants, so what is the motivation? He has never been a publicity hound, he just doesn't have the need to go back to it (even though we would love to hear your voice Art ).

Along with his voice, It'd be cool to see him too - Besides TV shows, I wonder if's he's also had any offers to once again play pitchman for commerical products? Ads pay good, and don't involve a lot of work -

C'mon Art, retirement doesn't have to mean you still can't spend a little time in front of the mic and cameras. Hey now! It's light on your schedule, and no doubt lucrative - Think about it... You've already had have some fun with foil, eh? --

Riddick....the man is done. He's pushing 70. He's rich. He has a million hobbies and interests. He has a beautiful wife and a beautiful young daughter. He'd be crazy to come back!

If he was gonna do something he would have done it by now. I heard him talking to his ham buddies more than 6 years ago. He was talking with a trucker. The trucker said he always loved trucking but after 30 years he had gotten tired of it. Art responded..."yea no matter what you do, even if you love it, you eventually get tired of it".

The man is done. All good things must come to an end my friend.

Hey Now Max, have no worries about Yours Truly here. I'm NOT deluding myself...

Still, if indeed Art's not at all interested in finding any fun outside of what-all he's doing in retirement, I figure I CAN still kid around about it and amuse myself (and maybe some other folks at the same time!)

Good to have some sensahumor about these things, knowhutImean?

I'm pushing 70, too... and I can't walk far these days. But if someone offered ME a chance to host a radio show, I'd take it; I can laugh & joke & jive with all the rest of you. You rarely ever get to see my comic-side, here.

Art just posted the following on his Facebook wall:

"As of today Premiere Radio confirmed that my Non-compete contract is over and I am a free agent. Stay tuned."

Good news I think.

Cartooncool beat me to the punch. But I stepped outside about an hour ago, and the coyotes were howling on the high desert of Idaho, and I knew something was up. Came back in and saw Arts post. Lightning strikes, thunder rolls .....
