An editor was fired for a rather stupid and lame attempt at comedy involving Tiger Woods and a noose. The joke was in really bad taste and above all was a poor worn cliche.
Racial remarks really are uncalled for and I am quite steady on this one. There are some who think calling Condi Rice Aunt Jemimah or Ellie Weisel "Shoah Pimps" is funny. I have never shared that sentiment and find the practice vile.
Had the editor smashed a Buick or made fun of the numerous endorsements of Tiger Woods this would have been funny. The best way to stop Tiger Woods is to set up a comercial for Metamucil.
Bigotry is not funny.
