QUICK THOUGHT ON IMUS
As the pansy-ass advertising community continues to give in to the extortion-like threats of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, it's important to keep one thing in mind: these two jerk-wads do NOT represent more than a tiny sliver of the black community. In fact, I believe they represent fewer than Cynthia McKinney did and she's about as fringe as they get. They are, however, a complete embarrassment to the people they claim to represent and make their community look vindictive, petty, and malicious.
As I've stated, I can't stand Don Imus. But what I do is choose not to listen. The fact that he will most likely also lose his CBS gig in addition to his MSNBC job is sickening to me and we will look back at this whole episode and be embarrassed as a nation for the manufactured rage and corporate overreaction. It's Janet Jackson all over again.
