Unjust country

1. - Anna Nicole Smith gets months upon months of coverage upon her death for being a nothing. Kurt Vonnegut, one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) writers and satirists of our time (or any time) gets maybe 30 seconds of news time devoted to his passing. It's a despicable world we inhabit.

2. - Free Reinstate Don Imus. What was said might not have been socially or politically correct... and what he said might not have been funny as it was intended to be, but damn it, if I will stand behind his right to say it on the airwaves. Really. How many Blacks were listening to his show in the first place? Now all the reactionaries are running to the television cameras to express their disgust to something that DOESN'T MATTER. WHAT DON IMUS SAID DOESN'T MATTER. This should be between him and the people he insulted. No one else should be involved. Leave it. Leave it.

3. - I demand that everyone and anyone reading this boycott any media outlet (Television, radio, magazine, etc.) that gives any airtime or print space to the (Alleged) Reverend Al Sharpton. He doesn't care about the black community or race in general. All he cares about is face time, keeping in the public eye and making people do what he wants them to do. He got Don Imus fired. Now what, Al? Now that you've crucified your current Christ, now what?

Now what?

It's time for a change.
