Big mouth apologies

9 Apr

Don Imus said some stupid, racist things recently. He says he’s embarrassed, and he ought to be. I’d be embarrassed to say something like that.

But the question I have is, what do we expect people to do about it? Is an apology enough? Is getting fired enough? What can a person who says something really idiotic and sincerely regrets it do to make amends?

I don’t know, but the question was bugging me, so I thought I’d write a quick post.
