Letters to the Editor

I Miss in the Morning

Am I sad to see Don Imus leaving the scene? Not
really. I've seen his show on MSNBC from time to
time, and I've found him and his cohorts to be a
collection of vulgar twits. That goes double for
the suck-up pols and media elitists who populate
his show.
What with his Stetson, his giddy-up dress and
his chewing gum, Imus is nothing more than a
tinhorn cowboy chewing his cud. All that's
missing is a cow and branding iron.
But I am sorry to see him go under these
circumstances. Shouldn't Beanie and his
African-American rapper posse be held to same
offensive speech standard as white celebrities?
That's not the point. Free speech is.
