Final Thoughts on Imus

What do we learn from this lamentable series of events? It's not what you say, it's who says it. It's not what you say, it's who you say it about. It's not what you say, it's who will mau mau your employer.
The Rutgers Women's Basketball team, once fierce division 1 competitors, now have promising careers on the victim hood circuit. Oprah, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters, NPR. We can all listen in rapt disbelief as these poor waifs explain how the ugly, old, troll ruined their lives.
Meanwhile rap "artists" continue to say and do the same thing, only thousands of times worse with the full support of those moaning loudest about Imus.
When the dust settles, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton will claim victory. Imus, who cares about Imus, deserves what he gets for going on Sharpton's radio show to seek absolution.
