Hail, the Conquered Hero



I love Dick Cavett.

And you will, too, after you read this following piece, "Hail, the Conquered Hero", which eloquently describes the Imus situation. Mr. Cavett is a brilliant, cerebral man and a master of the English written word. I highly recommend his other works as well.

This might be the most eloquent, rational, and truthful article written about this mess.

College Girl,
Did you read the comments on Cavett's blog? What a bunch of tightassed people on their high horses. I think you should post an elegant rebuke to them...

Al said...

I think you just rebuked them, imusfan!


lol

CollegeGirl said...

Imusfan, when I saw those comments I could barely believe what I was reading. I could see one or two like that. But half the commenteres comparing this to lynchings and nooses and et al? And I loved all the people who said he wasn't allowed to write about this because he was a white man. Wow.
Those comments made me angry...I may write a rebuke.

Well, I posted there early this morning and apparently my post was never "approved". I didn't say anything out of bounds; I simply agreed with Cavett.

Maybe the NY Times has the Media Matters folks selecting which posts get printed. Gee, who do you think they'll endorse in the presidential election?

CollegeGirl said...

Imusfan, it's crazy! I don't know why the folks at the Times aren't posting the positive comments. Maybe they're overwhelmed.

Most of the comments read like a parody of liberals. One of the last people wrote something like "The men who defended Imus are the same people who would have defended rape 30 years ago." WTF?

College Girl,

You need to try and contact Dick Cavett directly let him know what is happening, it will become a story in itself.

Dick Cavett, has been at the crossroads of many a timely story, remember it was old feed from Dick Cavett's old show, that was used against Sen John Kerry in the last Presidential election, if memory serves me.

This is the MSM- The Jayson Blair Times, censoring honest opinion.

Laree, I looked but I couldn't find an email address for Mr. Cavett. Which is upsetting.

However, here's some good news: I see that his piece cracked the "Top 10 Emailed" list. It's obviously striking a nerve.

College Girl,

I asked Marty- Chickaboomer, if she knew any way to contact Mr Cavett. Marty blogs entertainment news and has been covering Imus. I don't know that she is an Imus fan but she has stated, she thinks he got fired unfairly. I left her a comment under her last Imus piece.

CollegeGirl (my daughter's one too, btw), I posted on I-Truth that the erudite Mr. Cavett gives "elitists" a good name. So do you. It's a dirty job, but some body's got to do it...

CollegeGirl said...

Frec, that's very sweet of you. I don't know if I'm an "elitist," but I certainly try. :-)

Collegegirl, any "elitism" you possess is only of the intellectual kind...I hope one of these days you will be posting under the moniker "collegeprof." :)
