Don Imus

I love the crotchety old cowboy and he certainly does more good than harm, but,... (here it comes)   I was sickened when he and Charles McCord humiliated Laura Hillenbrand for her illness, and then repeated a clip where he miffed that chronic fatigue syndrome could be resolved with "a couple of black beauties and a bag of blow". It's not funny and I know he wants to be funny.
CFS is a life long illness that debilitates millions in this country. Jokes and hideous slights about this disease ruins lives and shatters families with their ignorance and misunderstanding.
Please do your homework.
