"Rogers was simultaneously the country’s most popular radio personality and newspaper columnist and one of its top three movie stars. Unfortunately, many Americans today (those who even know about him) think of him as merely a humorist or celluloid comedy star, but he was also the nation’s most influential political commentator, and consistently promoted the 'common man' from a progressive point of view." [editor's note: Progressive? I always thought he was quasi-libertarian, a less curmudgeonly Mencken! - SAT] (09/15/11)
