Yeah, so?

Unless you live in a cave along the Pakistan border, you've likely been swamped with news coverage of Don Imus' little faux pas. Yeah, he called the Rutgers' ladies basketball team a group of nappy haired ho's.

And my thoughts were, and continue to be, "yeah, so?"

I mean, really folks. I was brought up to believe that if someone insults you, consider the source. If it's from someone you respect, then you've got a problem. If it's not, then who cares? And if it's from some old, hacked out, has been of a radio host who also happens to be an idiot, then who really cares what he thinks or says? What's his audience size anyway, a coupla hundred?

If you don't like the tripe that comes out of his mouth, don't turn on his show. End of story.

However, now it would appear that we've got at least a two week news cycle because you surely know that when he comes back on the air in two weeks everyone will continue to ask him if he's managed to properly apologize or not yet.

Between this jackass' comments, and the discovery of just who the father of Anna's baby is, you'd think nothing else was going on in the world.

Yet another example of a news industry that has failed us in every respect.
