A comment on Imus...

I stopped listening to Imus a few years ago after I decided that his racist comments made me extremely uncomfortable. I've never been a big fan of hate-mongers on my radio dial.

Looks like a lot of people are really agitated over the recent comments by Imus about the members of the Rutgers womens basketball team. My view is that this guy is an ashwhole who should be ignored. Unfortunately, his racism will help increase his audience and help him sell soap and the other products that he is peddling.

Ideally we should buycott the products that support Imus and other racists on the airwaves. Problem is that most of us are too busy trying to make a living to engage in this kind of activity.
