Letters to Ed


After a long week of listening to Conservative talk shows, it is nice to hear your thoughts of conviction. Your voice usually reels me back a little where I can actually function with next week chores. Thank you for your years of dedication, Ed. And of course, the Backside of American History is equal, if not better, in all aspects, to Paul Harvey's Show.



Thank you for your very interesting, articulate and insightful articles.

You have not only educated me on many historical facts, you have helped clarify many questions I have had and brought to light many thoughts I have had over the past decade or so. Let's just hope that somehow out of all the readers of your articles, there are a few that will make the bold move to bring jobs and prosperity back to our cities in an honest way.

Hi Ed,

I have been listening to you for a better part of 2 decades and have over time grown addicted to your news site, InsideAutomotive.

Your insights on Wheels, editorials and InsideAutomotive has done more to inform me and shift me politically then any person or event in my life. I feel I am a much better person and citizen. For that service I thank you.


I use the Backside of American History segments as assignments with my college students (Sociology and Criminal Justice) as critical thinking papers covering all aspects of who and what we are.
Many of the values you express on your program, fundamental fairness, equality, and respect for others are still necessary ideals for determining our future.


Columbia College Ft. Worth

By the way really like your program. I am 49 and always liked to listen to Paul Harvey. Your news stories, second hand news and history rank right there with him.
