Chris buys a movie for $5.50

Last night while at WalMart I looked at the discount DVD rack and was shocked to see the movie, Talk Radio. I saw it in 1990 and have really wanted to get this DVD for the last two years and now here it was for only $5.50. The talk radio host that the movie revolves around does not really seem that realistic and there seems to be a lot of inconsistencies in this fictional character's ideology. One minute he's putting down bleeding-heart liberals and the next minute he's espousing ludicrously liberal ideas. He was an antagonist so the inconsistencies may have been intentional. It's a good movie though. It's solid. If you pick up a copy, don't watch it right after a movie with any action because you'll be bored out of your mind.

Gary in the Morning, a morning DJ ( in my hometown was fired for using "I'm a nappy-headed ho" (referencing Don Imus' now infamous words) as his "phrase that pays" the other day. The station fired him because a local black leader and his drinking-buddy friends threatened to call the NAACP and the FCC.

By HOWARD FRANKPocono Record WriterApril 11, 2007STROUDSBURG - Gary Smith, a local radio voice for 17 years, is off the air and out of a job for his comments during his "Gary in the Morning" show on WSBG 93.5 Tuesday, according to Rick Musselman, executive vice president/chief operating officer for Nassau Mid-Atlantic, parent of WSBG.“We reviewed the tape and have terminated him as of this morning," according to Musselman. He added “Gary has done a tremendous amount of good for both African-Americans and whites, but we feel his comments crossed the line."Smith had apparently used the phrase, "nappy-headed ho," that got nationally syndicated talk show host Don Imus in trouble earlier in the week.

Gotta love the night shift! A comment on the Don Imus Controversy...

Had to work the night shift so that meant good Talk Radio on 77 WABC. Mark Levin, then some dude who's name I forget....Jerry Apgar? The greatest thing though was finding Laura Ingraham in the 10pm slot. I really love and missed her show a lot. Her show...or hearing her voice was like hearing from an old friend that I hadn't seen or heard from in a long time. Coast to Coast AM was also great. I love my daytime usuals (Rush, Beck, Hannity) but it sure is great to hear some different voices coming from the AM dial.

And Don Imus....who cares? I've never really listened to Don Imus so I don't really care about the controversy surrounding him and his "nappy-headed ho's" comment.
Sharpton and Jackson comment? Both of those dudes have made racist comments and no one's ever held their feet to the fire and made them apologize? The truth of it is this: If your skin is not white you are allowed a lot leeway and free passes when it comes to saying and doing racist things.
