I am sooooo bothered by the Don Imus thing…. First off let me say that I think Imus is about as boring as listening to paint dry, so I dont really care that he is off the air… I couldnt believe he was still on in the first place! But, the last time I checked, we are living a country where you have the freedom and right to say what you want.
Knocking Imus out of his job for saying 5 or 6 incendiary words is just one more crack in the foundation of our rights.
If someone were to have a show that said stuff like that everyday…. (Oh wait, 92.3, the “Voice of the City” in Peoria plays crap that is worse than that) Well, you get the idea, its a one way street.
Imus should be subject to critisism for what he said, and his market share should determine if he has a show or not… I think the voices of a few “pot stirers” and loud mouths having the power to decide on his carrier is ridiculous. I mean seriously… I would wager that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have said more racist remarks in the last than Imus has said in his radio career. Again, one way street.
What else is going on…. Before I get all worked up here!!!
Easter was good. We had dinner at the house, and we were buried with leftovers! I am still eating hard boiled eggs. The kids had the equivalent to Christmas. Dan, Noel, my parents and Ang’s Mom all brought baskets of goodies… THANKS ALOT!!!
A tract of land is coming for sale today via an auction… Its 50 acres of woods and tillable land… By the time I post this, the auction will likely be over. Ang will be there to bid… It should be an interesting time to say the least! She has to take the kids with her! Fortunately, its inside at a church.
Summer is selling raffle tickets for her school…. Anyone who is interested can paypal me 10.00 bucks… The drawing is in June.
