You will not find a bigger fan of Imus In the Morning than me. Seriously, I watched for well over a decade, almost every day. Until last year, when worse banter than the Rutgers issue offended me so badly I felt physically ill.

It's somewhat painful for me to even write about it... I had enjoyed the political slant and the extremely clever (and diverse) musical ambiance for so long. I'd over-looked a lot because of it.
