Who Is Dr. Laura?

I've been a random listener of your show for many years. Lately, I've been hearing a lot of phone calls about "doing the right thing" in the Catholic religion. During these little moral phone calls, I'm always brought back to when I was a tween and I thought you would get a kick out of my story.

My family is a 'practicing' Catholic family. Growing up, my father would take all the kids to confession on the first Saturday of the month. I was about 12-years-old at the time. That night at the dinner table, my sister put her fork down, looked at my parents and asked, "Who is Dr. Laura?"

My dad gave her a look of surprise and asked where she got that name. He knew who you were. She said, "Today at confession, the priest gave me my penance and then after my blessing, he told me that I need to get a radio and listen to Dr. Laura."

HA! So, thank you for being you. I applaud you. You are a blessing to so many people.
