Viola was a common-sense, no-nonsense person with unfaltering, inspirational Conservative values, who raised a brilliant, articulate son with the same rock-solid foundation. According to a nameless "staff writer" at the L.A. Times, she was a Democrat who sparred with her son on the air, however I am an avid listener of KABC 790 in Los Angeles, but I never heard this happen -- c'mon what do you expect from the lib Dino-Media? How often do you suppose they catch the Larry Elder radio show?
At any rate, rest in peace, Sweetie. You will be missed by many.
