    What you're describing, would have offended me, too, and he's made other gaffes. During the course of one show once, he made an aside comment that struck me as quite overtly racist. I never took action, although it came out at me. I hope he got feedback from other listeners.

    The best of us occasionally slip up. All we can hope for, is the wisdom to be fully accountable for our mistakes (and, of course, the wisdom not to make more than our share of them).

      I have no idea whether he's open to criticism.

      While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
