As I predicted in the other thread, the other shoe has officially dropped and CBS has fired Imus and cancelled his nationally syndicated radio program.
It's stupid. I know what he said wasn't the smartest thing to say and I don't think he should've said it but it's so blown out of proportion now. He should not have been fired. What if Steve Harvey had said something of this nature, would he be fired? I doubt it. Thank God for XM. I may have to pay for it, but at least people can still say what they want, for now anyway.

"Six outs to a full inning. In a major league game, you're going to play 8½ or 9 innings. That is never going to change. The money changes. People change. But the game itself is never going to change. … The people who designed this thing are brilliant."-Jamie Moyer
For now is right.
Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."
