Jay Severin, the fiery right wing talk show host on Boston's WTKK-FM radio station, was suspended yesterday after calling Mexican immigrants "criminaliens," "primitives," "leeches," and exporters of "women with mustaches and VD," among other incendiary comments.
Heidi Raphael, a spokeswoman for the station, said Severin had been suspended indefinitely from his afternoon drive-time show. She declined to say which of his comments - made since an outbreak of swine flu was linked to Mexico in recent days - sparked the suspension.

Sounds like a management dodge.
I had to look this one up:
Resolved Question » Why Do Mexican Girls have mustaches? Why do all mexicans girls grow thick black ugly mustaches? And why do all the mexican dudes grow out there black mustache? 2 months ago
Best Answer - Chosen by Voters Some girls develop a moustache, just like boys do. Facial (and also body) hair on women comes about in the same way as on men because of 1) her body being sensitized, before you were even born, to testosterone -- doesn't happen to all girls, but does to many 2) her body producing high levels of testosterone The growth rate and coarseness of the hair depends on just how much testosterone is circulating in her bloodstream. It's more common among some ethnic groups than others, for women to grow a moustache. Among some ethnic and cultural group it's considered normal for a woman to wear a moustache. For example most middle-aged Russian peasant women wear a moustache without embarrassment, as, for that matter, do a great many middle-aged German women. It's rather expected in those communities that women of that age will wear a moustache. 2 months ago
Still no resolution to Jay situation; VB filling in today.
“”WTKK and Greater Media value an open and vigorous dialogue, but we also strongly adhere to basic principles of civility, common decency and respect for all cultures. We believe Jay’s suspension is the best way to uphold both of these corporate policies. WTKK Management met with Jay Severin and his agent today. He will continue to remain on suspension until further notice.”
Of relevance. Apparently one of the activists who got him off the air.
