Last night, the always humorless Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily weighed in on Don Imus, condemning him in the strongest of terms. I didn't mention it until now because I sent Farah an email, and I wanted to wait to see if he published it. He didn't.
I wasn't surprised. Years ago, Joe and I used to be best buds. Well, maybe not, but we did correspond a number of times, always at my initiation naturally, but the relationship soured either when he learned I was a non-believer or when I leveled some criticism at one of his positions (I can't remember what) for the umpteenth time.
I did get one letter to him published. It was after he had apologized for being anti-Vietnam in the 70s. I wrote that he shouldn't have done that (apologized) because it was a meaningless gesture, not unlike Jane Fonda's apology. I said that he was a different person then, and knowing him, he strongly believed in the rightness of his opposition. I added that furthermore, he was still right to have opposed it.
Anyway, I sent the following to Joey:early this morning after he'd begun his column with this:
"For once in my life, I agree with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson."
