Why Don't You Have A Seat Over Here...


So, do we need to be concerned about this?

UPDATE: Missing sex offender found in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. A sex offender was found and arrested in Portland last night after he went missing from his last known address in Kennewick, police said this morning.

A tip led Portland police to find and arrest John Imus, 46, for failing to register as a sex offender, a felony.

Tri Cities Crime Stoppers issued an alert about Imus on Monday after the Benton County Prosecutor’s Office charged him.

Police learned Imus did not stay at an address in the 500 block of West Albany Ave., which he indicated was his home after being released from Eastern Lake Hospital in Medical Lake on March 25.

Imus is classified as a Level 3 sex offender, meaning he’s considered very likely to reoffend.
He was convicted of voyeurism in Franklin County in 2001 and has previous convictions for third-degree assault in Spokane County and indecent exposure in California.

Benton County officials must now extradite Imus to the Tri-Cities, said Kennewick police spokesman Mike Blatman.

I hope a certain "robio" (or a certain Godfather, Hulk Hogan, Dr. Phil, Bill Clinton, or Blind Mississippi White Boy Pigs Feet Dupree) sees this entry before Monday...

As do I, Mike. If not, someone needs to message him saying, "So, uh, Chris Hansen is showing up at Rainbow Studies Monday, you might want to call in sick...that, or make sure that the makeup people do a really really good job in disguising you as Bill Clinton..."

I just had a mental image of Imus walking onto an empty RFD set at 5:55 AM, bewildered that everyone is missing...and then Chris Hansen enters through the side door. "Mr. Imus? Why don't you take a seat over here...we have your online conversations with a young girl named 'Deirdre'..."

Ah, don't worry about it...Imus is just a "Level 3" offender...

VERY unlikely to offend again....

Surely McCord will have any and all updates concerning this matter come Monday...

That is all...

According to the AP, this Imus' middle name is Cory. Then again, Imus did get around up there for the RR back in his yout'.

Googling round the world for news, I found this:

Reb Eli Baruch, zt’l, was not only a gaon ( excellent scholar) in chidushei Torah..., he was a gaon in ne’Imus (better than mensch, a sweetheart). In fact, his entire persona exuded ne’Imus. The way he would relate to people... his incredible manner of delivering a shiur (class)had such ne’Imus, such a palpable pleasantness, that one could not help but feeling uplifted by the encounter.."

Now, I don't know how " Ne(ed) Imus " _I_ am, but I do listen every morning, and always feel uplifted by the fact I am not in Imus' gunsight. :)

Thanks, CG, for working my Hebrew skills...dang contractions will kill me yet. :)

(and if a particular funnyman sees this, you best believe RBO is "ne'Imus", too)

College Girl,

Too funny Imus just can't escape his MSNBC past:)

Queenpat said...

No, Imus just chooses to ignore that chapter of his radio/TV life. Give or take a Russert appearance. Glad they found the cretin. Now where is Dr. Phil or Bubba Clinton when you need them?

CollegeGirl said...

So far they haven't provided us with any updates about this dire situation...who knows ;-)

And the fact that "ne'imus" is a Hebrew word is pretty amazing. (Especially since it's apparently a synonym for 'palpable pleasantness.' Some of the interns on the show would probably disagree :-)

I know this is a joke somewhat. John Donald Imus is 67 going on 68.

His Birthdate is July 23, 1940.

So we all had a great laugh. And Charles would or could make a fake News report regarding this without using the age.

It would be wild.

CollegeGirl said...

Yes, Bruce, this is a joke. I was employing sarcasm throughout this entry. Just making sure you picked up on that.

Yes, there is a guy with the same name as the I-Man. Yes, he does engage in some illegal activities. No, it is not the same Imus.
