Do you remember your first time? People tend to remember the moment they first heard The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio. For Zev Chafets, it was in a car in Detroit, driving down Woodward Avenue. Limbaugh's braggadocio, the outrageous satire, the slaughtering of liberal sacred cows performed with the verve of a rock-n-roll DJ-it seemed fresh, funny and completely subversive. "They're never going to let this guy stay on the air," he thought. Almost two decades later Chafets met Rush for the first time, at Limbaugh's rarely visited "Southern Command." They spent hours together talking on the record about politics, sports, music, show business, religion and modern American history. Rush opened his home and his world, introducing Chafets to his family, closest friends, even his psychologist. The result was an acclaimed cover-story profile of Limbaugh in The New York Times Magazine. But there was much more to say, especially after Limbaugh became Public Enemy Number One of the Obama Administration. At first Limbaugh resisted the idea of a full-length portrait, but he eventually invited Chafets back to Florida and exchanged more than a hundred emails full of his personal history, thoughts, fears and ambitions. What has emerged is an uniquely personal look at the man who is not only the most popular voice on the radio, but the leader of the conservative movement and one of the most influential figures in the Republican Party. While Limbaugh's public persona is instantly recognizable, his background and private life are often misunderstood. Even devoted Dittoheads will find there's a lot they don't know about the self-described "harm little fuzzball" who has, over the years, taken on the giants of the mainstream media and the Democratic Party-from Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama-with "half his brain tied behind his back, just to make it fair." Chafets paints a compelling portrait of Limbaugh as a master entertainer, a public intellectual, a political force, and a fascinating man.

Ministerin salattu elämä paljastuu Samuel Helander on monessa menestynyt mies. Rohkeasti ja siekailematta hän on aina ottanut oman paikkansa. Näkyvän bisnesuran jälkeen hän ponkaisi eduskuntaan, ja nyt hän on julkisuudessa viihtyvä EU-ministeri.Täysin odottamatta Helander löydetään hukkuneena Utön edustalta. Sarjakuvapiirtäjä Ari Aalto ei ole uskoa uutista. Lapsuudenkaveri Samuel on vastikään käynyt hänen luonaan muistelemassa menneitä ja juhlimassa. Aalto on varma, että kuolemaan liittyy rikos.
Tuttu toimittaja Eero Räsänen tarttuu Aallon epäilyksiin ja tempaa hänet mukaansa setvimään tapausta. He huomaavat, että Samuel Helander on huiputtanut kaikkia: mikään hänen elämässään ei ole ollut sitä miltä on näyttänyt.
Myös poliisit kiinnostuvat Aallon löytämistä tiedoista, mutta hän ei ole varma, kenelle hän voi kertoa ja minkä verran.
Ennen pitkää hän saa peräänsä sekä etsivät että rikolliset. Pudotus on uudentyyppinen, vauhdikas jännäri, joka yhdistää toimintaelokuvien hengästyttävät käänteet ja kotoisat sympaattiset henkilöhahmot.
In the world of sports, football is still king.
From Pop Warner up through the pros, people just can’t seem to get enough of their gridiron gods. Nowhere is this truer than in Buffalo, New York, where the fans are desperate for a winner. The Buffalo Blizzard of the North American Football Association (NAFA) have teased and tortured their fan base for well beyond a decade. Long past is the franchise’s heyday in the mid- to late-‘90s when they lost four consecutive Mega Bowls. However, this just may be the year (2015). Jack Driftwood, a 17-year NAFA veteran (all with the Blizzard), is back for number 18 and one last shot at Mega Bowl glory. But the Blizzard haven’t been to the playoffs since Driftwood’s rookie year when they lost in a blowout in Mega Bowl 33. Blizzard General Manager Donald Allen Fegel Jr, through a series of shrewd moves and backroom dealings, has brought the franchise back from the dead and into contention. Team owner Gerald Wainscott III is no spring chicken, and he has recruited his daughter Gerry to take over the franchise when he is gone. Gerry’s arrival throws a wrench into the lives of both Driftwood and Fegel, but for entirely different reasons. Driftwood and Fegel clash on and off the field in a truly no-holds-barred fight to the finish. Yet they each desire one thing above all: A Mega Bowl victory for the city of Buffalo.
