Beccy Borders Fires Singer for Bush Joke (91* d) RE: Borders Fires Singer for Bush Joke 02 Aug 03

Excuse me, but I guess I don't see this as a "Bush-related" scandal. I see it more as a super-sensitive, over-worried bookstore owner type deal. Yeesh. What the owner/manager did was perfectly legal, but pretty stupid.
I cannot imagine that he got enough complaints about the comments on Bush's legs to be really concerned about his clientelle. I would imagine that he probably got more complaints 'bout the Maher song (even though THAT's reactionary, too...) As my younger sibs would say, "WhutEVER!" I just wish people would think before reacting a bit more or less depending upon the histrionics on display.
