In a way I have to say that I am ambivalent about the whole Don Imus thing.
Yes he has done a lot for charity, yes what he said was reprehensible and yes he has apologized for it.
I have never been a Don Imus fan. I have on occasion watched a few minutes of his show on MSNBC once in a while when I happen to be up that early and the other news stations are regurgitating stuff I have already heard ad nausium. Given that, my opinion is that Don Imus has been or acts like he has been a burnt out shell of his former self for a very long time. I have long compared The Imus in The Morning on MSNBC to the movie "Weekend at Bernie's".
What I thought I was watching was a hunched up old curmudgeon propped up behind a microphone and prodded to speak every so often so that the rest of the crew would have jobs.
I guess I really don't care whether he kept his job or not since I never really have paid any attention to him anyway.
But then what do I know, I am still waiting for an apology for the Tawana Brawley affair and the comments Sharpton made about the Duke LaCrosse players a year ago.
I'm not holding my breath for the day Rosie gets the axe either, but that is a whole other story.
