Sugar Bits - RIP Kurt Vonnegut

  • Famed novelist Kurt Vonnegut died last night from complications resulting from a recent fall. He will be dearly missed. - BuzzSugar
  • Snoop avoided prison time on Wednesday by entering into a plea agreement on guns and weapons charges. Instead he is required to complete 800 hours of community service. He better get started! - People
  • Marc Anthony also avoided jail time this week by entering into a plea agreement. He agreed to pay $2.5 million in back taxes to avoid criminal prosecution. J Lo probably isn't too happy about that! - TMZ
  • Joe Francis was indicted on federal tax evasion charges for illegally deducting more than $20 mil in fake expenses. Sounds like someone is in big trouble. No more partying at his house in Cabo with young Hollywood - The Smoking Gun
  • Don Imus went ahead with his annual radio charity today even after MSNBC pulled the plug on his television broadcast over his racial slur against the Rutger's basketball team. Imus should just call it a day already - AP
  • Lane Garrison plans to plead guilty to vehicular manslaughter charges and wants to meet with the victims families to apologize. - TMZ

dear skinnyfat yes i am quite aware of free speech which is why he is not being arrested. the 1st amendment only applies to law not business. if advertisers drop out because of him cbs has every right to fire him. imus got fired because he said something stupid, he knew that one of the cbs board members used to be the president of the naacp. he knew that advertisers could drop him.if his charity suffers, its his own fault. free speech is a lovely thing but one must accept the consequences of it when they choose use it without caution. why is it harder to believe keith richards didnt snort his father?

canthelpwatching, just so everyone knows Imus was just being Imus. He also called his wife a "green" ho because of the work she does with eliminating toxic ingredients from cleaning products. There is a black radio city here in NYC that uses the terms bitches and ho's ALL the time and no one's firing them. **************************************************** "I will be your Dixie Chicken if you'll be my Tenessee Lamb and we can walk together down in Dixie Land..."

Skinny Fat - That's exactly what I said the other day. My daughter and I love that book. I also take offense that something about me, being NAPPY, is now bad. Why does nappy have to be bad? Because it's not white? So now we've let someone turn something else about me into something negative. Dark skin bad CHECK Nappy hair bad CHECK What else about me is going to be bad now?

Dear Flutterpie, No one said Imus is the only one who raises money for children. This is America and we have freedom of speech - EVERYONE is allowed to say whatever ignorant or racist thing he or she wants. By the way, there are two childrens books titled "Happy to be Nappy" and "Nappy Hair" and one for adults titled "Nappyisms: Affirmations for Nappy-Headed People and Wannabes!" Is that racist and offensive? **************************************************** "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in America anymore."

Well, stick a fork in him. CBS fired him. Mid-telethon. Won't even let him continue tomorrow morning. Mind you, this is an organization that did not immediately suspend just so that he could run the telethon. Classy. CBS to Cancer, SIDS and Sickle Cell Kids: Drop Dead. Jerks.

I do not see how making fun of yourself makes it any less of a sensitive topic when making fun of others. Imus sccrewd up bigtime, but to ruin hios entire career that in general has not been offensive is just wrong. Has anyone seen South Park lately? Naggers? It was offensive, but it was a classic case of America today.

Imus will prevail because he's going to raise more money for the kids this year because people are going to donate to show support. www.wfan.com - give what you can :jumpin: **************************************************** "I will be your Dixie Chicken if you'll be my Tenessee Lamb and we can walk together down in Dixie Land..."

Stuff gets said but i did a live radio course and i remember the first thing we were told was to watch our step and if we cursed on air that would mean immediate dismissal.Chris insults everyone in his shows from black to hispanics to white people, everyone is included, he doesn't target a specific race for 3 hours straight but whatever, Al and Jesse are awful people and I wish someone would take them to task for what they've done especially Al.

by these standards, chris rock can't say white cracker anymore :rotfl: **************************************************** "I will be your Dixie Chicken if you'll be my Tenessee Lamb and we can walk together down in Dixie Land..."

maeve, thanks for the link. i'm so glad to hear the radiothon is doing well. i'm right by the hard rock...maybe i can get in :jumpin: N2001 - when you do live radio, sometimes stuff gets said. Al Sharpton is an ambulance chaser and needs to STFU and sit down already. **************************************************** "I will be your Dixie Chicken if you'll be my Tenessee Lamb and we can walk together down in Dixie Land..."

But does Chris Rock call specific people crackers, or just a general comment not directed at anyone specific?

maeve, thanks for the link. We lost our daughter to SIDS, and her 7th birthday should have been this Sunday. I've already made a donation in her name this month, but I will donate again. SIDS is definitely something that needs researched to help prevent it from happening to other families. It's not as simple as putting a baby to sleep on their back unfortunately.

There is a definite double standard in the industry eg Isiah Washington and Don should have known that making a comment like that when Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are around is like shooting yourself in the face. They are publicity hungry and he played right into their hands. That being said you could be Mother Theresa but once you show racist, xenophobic or homophobic tendencies, I think you need to be taught a lesson.

I am so sick of the double standards in America. Why is more tolerable to call white people "crackers", then it is for someone to say "nappy headed"? Watch a Chris Rock special and you will know what I mean. Yes, comedy is comedy, but words are still words, in ANY case they can be offensive. Yes, what he said was totally ignorant and racist, but this is not the first ignorant comment to come out of a person's mouth in public. I catch myself saying stupid things, even about people of my own ethniticity. I have never been an Imus fan, but he raises millions of dollars for children, he has been a useful person in society, moreso then some odf these so called civil rights leaders that raise mobney for their own personal gain. If MLK were alive, he would want this handled differently, Im sure . Its all about awareness, it should notr be about punishment.

I was in tears last night when I found out about Mr Vonnegut. I've enjoyed his writing since I was little but he's been my humanist (atheist) mentor for many years and he will be sorely missed for his compassion for all people.

i think calling what imus said "free speech" is kind of belittling what the first amendment truly is. there was absolutely no reason for him to say what he said, it was despicable, wrong and msnbc and cbs have every right to pull him off the air. that being said, imus has called the president a cold blooded murderer, why arent people up in arms about that? the fact is that people say and do stupid things every day and people get offended every day, no amount of protests and lawsuits will ever change that. once this country stops its whining about "being offended" will we then be able to practice true free speech. why is it harder to believe keith richards didnt snort his father?

Donate at www.wfan.com The 18th annual Radiothon began Thursday and runs through Friday. It was one of the reasons the start of his suspension from CBS was delayed. Tony Gonzalez, supervisor of the Radiothon phone bank, said volunteers were getting about 200 more pledges per hour than they did last year, and most callers were expressing support for Imus. By midday, $967,793 had been pledged, according to a display board at the Hard Rock Cafe, where the Radiothon was moved Thursday morning. Last year's Radiothon raised a total of $2.9 million for three charities — Tomorrows Children's Fund, CJ Foundation for SIDS and the Imus Ranch.

Imus' radiothon is still going on but he could raise more money if his show had aired on MSNBC. Imus is not a phony ass celeb and isn't going to check into some ridiculous form of "rehab" or go on the talk show circuit apologizing over and over again. It's gotten out of control. **************************************************** "I will be your Dixie Chicken if you'll be my Tenessee Lamb and we can walk together down in Dixie Land..."
