"Glenn Beck on Ice"

Image hosted by

Last night at the Orpheum Theatre (Memphis, TN) my wife and I attended the GlennBeck on Ice program.

If you listen to Beck on the radio, you know that he and his staff are trying to come up with a way to describe the show to people in other cities on the tour.

We were part of the meet-and-greet after the show and Glenn asked us to call in Wednesday to tell listeners how they felt about the show.

If you live in one of the cities on the tour, read my lips: GO SEE THE SHOW!

There are several ways I could describe the show, but the best way would be to use Glenn's own introduction we hear on his radio show, "the fusion of entertainment and enlightenment".

First the show entertains us by allowing us to laugh at ourselves by reminding us to not take ourselves so seriously. (The part about the "fruit cellar" is priceless.)

Second, the show enlightens us by reminding us of the things that we NEED to take seriously. Things such as family and faith. The impression I got at the end of the show was that perhaps one of the best things we can do for our children is to create memories. Memories of doing things together. Memories that help to form our lives. Things that, when added together, show us what is good about the American spirit. The Real America.

Thanks, Glenn.
