He's baaack...

Just when I thought Halloween was over, I was scrolling through the headlines and ran across this...



Ok, ok, just kidding! (Well, the news is real though.)
But come on, are you really surprised? Happy? Ecstatic? Irritated? Thoughts anyone?

I never had much of a problem with Imus. I never really listened to him before, but the comments that got him in trouble werent exactly a detour from his usual rantings. Having said that, my index finger works just fine when I want to change the station...and I've heard questionable stuff coming from Opie and Anthony and Steve Harvey, but they're still on the air waves.

Yeah, I don't really care one way or the other. I never listened to him before and I won't now.

Hopefully Dog the Bounty Hunter can be picked up by another network as well.

at the risk of offending old white men every where ...here's my take...

It's time for you guys to sit down and shut up. Let the rest of us lead and talk for awhile.

After twenty years of being on the radio --- almost always cast as the female sidekick who was scolded if she didn't giggle at the boys jokes enough --- I'm ready to hear what other talking heads have to say.

Wanting to hear from the rest of the folks is probably the same reason I don't read books by male authors...(now I've offended the rest of the guys... I'm not hating... I just want to hear from other folks for awhile...)

You make an interesting point Greg. I mean Imus is certainly not the first or only one to make controversial comments. He's just the one that got caught in national limelight.

Yeah Ashley, I've never listened to Imus before he made those comments, but I really did have a problem with what he said. I don't watch Dog the Bounty Hunter, but I'm familiar with the show. Either way, I had a problem with what he said and was glad to see that action was taken. I just feel like there has to be a limit. But hey, that's just my opinion.

kathryn, thanks for sharing your perspective. Yeah, I think there's definitely room for more diversity among the current lineup of talking heads, especially in the 21st century.
