I am depressed, however, reading the comments on MSNBC.com, which I have to believe represent the Average American.
There's the usual trite comments about "free speech" and "double standards,"
the expected vitriol against Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the brilliant analyses about how this is "all about money," and lots of folks saying Imus went too far but he shouldn't have been fired.
I'm too tired to write at length about this now, so I hope others of you will. I said my piece earlier and I'm still trying to process why I feel this episode was so particularly ugly and upsetting.
