A DOCTOR & A DAUGHTER IN DISGRACE
The Doctor is Out: this week on Larry King (recently calling it quits himself), radio personality ‘Dr. Laura‘ announced that she is ‘done with’ radio after the furor stirred up by her using ‘the N-word’ 11 times in a 5 minute broadcast segment– in a rant that she dubiously described to King as a ‘philosophical point.’
The doctor claims her 1rst ammendment rights were being violated– though the 1rst ammendment applies to the government suppressing free speech. What Dr. Laura was facing was public outrage over her rants by offended listeners, who were exercising their own Free Speech rights by objecting loud and clear.
Meanwhile, on the beach in New Jersey, TV reality star ‘Snooki’ was arrested for ‘annoying’ fellow beachgoers. An unrepentent Snooki admitted she’d had ‘too many cocktails’ but declared she was ‘too pretty to be in jail.’
How do you judge these latest ‘disgraces’? Does Dr. Laura have a leg to stand on? Has success spoiled Snooki? And in a related development on the Celebrity Crime beat, should ‘too pretty’ Lindsay Lohan draw a cool million dollars for her first post-jail interview?
