Don Imus was a pioneer in the brand of radio that guys like Stern and O&A make a living on today. He's mellowed significantly in his old age, but give the man his due.
As for his current comments -- he made a joke that bombed when he stepped over the line a little. It happens to comedians and would-be funnymen all the time when, especially in the free-form that a radio program offers. I know its a shocking concept to some, but just because you say something insensitive doesn't make you per-se a bad person.
