Don Imus

What to do about Don Imus?

Offensive and outrageous speech is protected by the First Amendment.
Apart from apologizing, which Don Imus has done several times, he should donate one year salary to a charity that serves black women. He should also volunteer for some community service. Imus represents something very deep in American society. He is like "the canary in the coal mine." Do not destroy him.

My new book Digital Freedom: How Much Can You Handle? is forthcoming from Rowman & Littlefield in August.
