Back in July while on the road to Oregon, I came across Stephanie Miller for the first time ever in the Arizona desert. Those of you who are not familiar with Stephanie Miller, she has a morning syndicated radio talk show. And I enjoyed it, because it made me laugh at things that usually upset me on other talk shows discussing current events and I appreciated that.
Although we don't have the Stephanie Miller Show on local radio, I've taken to streaming her over the internet often since returning from that trip. I've become a fan. But what I discovered on her website today not only outraged me but scared the hell out of me.
Miller received a very threatening letter from a viewer of a Hannity and Colmes show she recently appeared on. It was from a viewer who took issue with her and the reason I chose not to post his letter was, besides being extremely threatening, it was brutally and sexually violent.
But I changed my mind after hearing Stephanie Miller confront this bastard this evening. Turns out he is retired after running an insurance and investment agency for 40 years. (Which only shows you never know who you're dealing with!)
From Steph's phone call, I gathered he is probably married. He may have a daughter, or if not, a granddaughter. And if so, I would hope the next time he feels angry enough at someone of the opposite sex, he might consider his daughter, or granddaugther before making brutal and sexist threats against females. Here then is his letter to Stephanie Miller. (Any typos are his.)

The Fox Channel
Hannity & Colmes - 9-10PM EST
Attn: Stephanie Miller
Fox Guest & Cindy Sheehan Supporter
Program of Friday, October 13, 2006
1211 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036
As with Cindy Sheehan the best thing that could happen to you
would be seeing some WONDERFUL activist sticking an AK-47 up your
Glory Holes and sending you into eternity. But this is not a threat
as I am a paci-fist preferring to confront dumb fucks like you two
cunts with words rather than violence. But I would gather my 1st
amendment rights permit me to HOPE (!) and PRAY (!) that someone
decides you're better off as statistics. Honestly, should I hear
of either you leaving this earth prematurely I would initiate a
personal celebration that would make Animal House appear to be just
another quiet Sunday in church.
However, again an exercise of my individual rights even a liberal
Supreme Court can't take away, I will be mailing copies of your
appearance on yesterday's Hannity & Colmes to some WONDERFUL people.
Without including a cover letter and without a return address we
will be mailing copies of your anti-America rhetoric together with
any personal information we can cull off the Net to the following
recipients. Receivers will be families and friends of others lost
in Iraq but who believe their sons/daughters died nobly, others
with a SPECIAL fervor and fire-in-their-belly for this country and
who totally and completely despise renegades as yourself and, too,
several others whose "credentials" I will keep to myself but assu-
redly shall we say devoted people to this country's future. As the
phrase goes we must identify this nation's enemies and though we
keep friends close, we MUST keep our enemies even closer and you
two vile bitches are just that, Benedict Arnolds to the country
who gives you the freedom to embarrass yourselves and make an ass
of yourselves also, and simutaneously.
Therefore, I trust the both of you mother fuckers will continue to
show yourselves on TV shows, exposure to more and more people, as
again not on my hand but by someone who believes in such finelizing
action. So, PLEASE, don't stop, even expand your words of HATE for
America and this Presidency because the more you talk the better
chance my hopes and prayers are fulfilled. Would love to celebrate
another America HATER meets his/her maker.
From the right 'Right,
Here is the Fox program with Stephanie Miller that so outraged ol' "Sock" Sokolowski
And here is brave Stephanie Miller's personal phone call to pissant Sokolowski in which he denies he threatened her (and Cindy Sheehan) with death.
