A true disappointment

This morning, mes amis, the venerable Diane Rehm devoted her first hour to the Imus affair. Her guests were Clarence Page, syndicated columnist, Chicago Tribune; Michael Meyers, executive director, New York Civil Rights Coalition; and Frank Ahrens, Washington Post radio reporter. Now, couldn't one of those African-American men been excused in order to make way for a black woman commentator? This is after all, a story, in the the words of Rutgers women's basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer "about the degradation of women."

Enough already with the all-male commentary rosters on this story!
