Predictably, Don Imus' comments yesterday about Adam "Ex-Pac" Jones have triggered more debate about the old man's motivations: Has he finally lost it? Will he be fired? Is he really just a hood-wearing racist hiding behind a shock jock's microphone? All legitimate questions.
Regardless of where you sit on the whole Imus/"nappy-headed ho" spectrum, it was pretty apparent that Imus did at least acknowledge how something like that could be considered offensive. Sure. That's his job: Be an old hillbilly crank and sometimes be the voice of the ignorant truth, for whatever purpose that serves.
