No bad blood, as Don-O and Jay are good friends just kidding around...? Apparently no
apology will be needed from Mr. Imus and Mr. McCord as Jay wasn’t offended. File under
“Let’s Help Promote our Friends At WTKK By Plugging Both Imus And Severin” by the Herald.
(Severin wrote a column in yesterday’s Herald defending Imus.
He will appear each Wed. in the paper.) Here is a letter
to the Herald about that column:
I could not agree more with Jay Severin (First they came for Don Imus . . . Dec. 12). While Imus comments about the Rutgers University womens basketball team were gratuitous and in poor taste, we should defend totally his right to say them without being publicly lynched by the PC police.
I once considered myself to be a liberal. However, liberalism has come to mean things that are just the opposite of values I hold. These include not prosecuting criminals, the creation of a nanny state and anti-constitutional policies including but not limited to attacks on free speech.
I did not leave my liberal beliefs, but liberalism has surely left me.
