I am sorry to have to announce this but I will not be on Tonight or any other night, yes I am going to hang it up. Whoever this crazy person is, they are not stopping and it has come to the point that we as a Family do not feel it is worth the risk. While I think the person or persons are after me, my Wife and now my Daughter are really scared, the other night after the latest incident my Daughter was off in the corner of her bed scared to death as the Police cars came screaming up. I will not put my Family through this. As you all know I dearly love what I do but not at the expense of never ending Terrorism. I want to thank those of you who have shown so much support and it has been my joy, short as it has been to have cracked that Mic open for a last time. This was a Family decision. The girls stuck with me and still would but if one of them were harmed because of what I love doing my life would be over.
I’m crushed, just when I was addicted again.
Last time it was because his son was kidnapped, wasn’t it?
Geez, how old is this daughter who still lives at home?
No, there’s been at least 3 or 4 more since that time.
Didn’t his son commit suicide?
With “Family” being capitalized, I would think that the mafia may be involved in this somehow.
Nothing ever just happens to this guy for normal reasons, does it?
Geez, Art. You can’t afford 24 hour security? What did you spend all those millions from your first career on? Oh, yet more ham equipment. Never mind.
After what? Two weeks?
I guess the chemtrails led straight to the FEMA camp.
By the end of January, Bell began hinting that he was making a significant life decision, but that he would keep it a secret for at least one year, asking listeners to remind him in 2007 to let them in on it. By March, he was saying that he would soon take a “huge risk” and “do something rash”. On April 15, 2006, he ended the mystery and, to the mild surprise of listeners, revealed that, after several weeks of mourning, he had recently gone to the Philippines and married Airyn Ruiz, whose name is pronounced like the name “Irene,” but Bell likes to pronounce her name as “Arin.” This is because during their Internet dating, Bell imprinted the spelling of her name with that pronunciation. Airyn Ruiz Bell is a recent college graduate. Ruiz ... given Bell’s private e-mail address by an amateur radio friend ...had contacted Bell to offer condolences shortly after Ramona’s death. After “dating” via Internet videoconferencing for “hundreds of hours,” the two married one week after Bell arrived in the Philippines to actually meet her in person. Bell also paid for his friend ... who was courting Airyn’s sister ... to accompany him to the Philippines and marry her. The two couples wed in a double marriage ceremony on April 11, 2006.
On October 7, 2006, Bell announced on Coast to Coast that Ruiz was pregnant with the couple’s first child. Bell told listeners that the couple’s child was indeed a girl as many listeners suspected. He noted that they had been hoping for a girl and had announced only a girl’s name for their unborn child in hopes of receiving a girl.
Bell and Airyn’s baby girl, Asia Rayne Bell, was born by caesarean section on May 30, 2007.
That’s unfortunate that a nut job can ruin things.
What happened? Did he get SWATted?
The last time this happened 10 or so years ago:
Some neo-Nazi group was repeatedly calling in, screaming that Art was molesting some kids.
That came at a point when it turned out his only son had been molested by an HIV+ teacher at his public school.
LOTS of his topics I find are silly, but a few were super interesting.
SOME people can’t help but spoil it for all the others...
