    first the gay and lesbian community, then military wives now the black community...she finds a way to insult everybody

    given how messed up and rudderless she is, it's hard to take advice of any sort from her anyway

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Good for her. I agree with her 100%. She tried to make a valid point and got blasted for it. The double standard for the use of that particular word has become ridiculous.

    When I first heard she got canned for this I thought it was because she lit into some caller and called them "the n word". I didn't hear the audio until today. I have no problem with what she said in the context she was using it in. I don't think she should even apologize. It's not like she went all Michael Richards on someone.

    I agree Viking. If that word is so bad, then why does one race use it against themselves and it's nothing?

    Take another word for example... starts with c, rhymes with runt. I know maybe one woman that has used that word. If this racial term is as bad as that, then no one would be using it, but instead it gets used on a regular basis.

    I once asked a black kid back in high school what the difference was between a black and a white using it. He didn't even have an answer, he just said he could and I couldn't. It was weird.

    Regardless, good luck, "Dr." You won't be missed.

    She didn't need to apologise. She was asking a legitimate question and the caller was playing dumb. It was a mistake laying the burden on "HBO comics", though, as Richard Pryor and Redd Foxx used that word in their acts in the '70s and I didn't hear the word nowhere near as much as I do now. The fault lies mainly with the whole rap culture, if you ask me. Bunch of ignorant pinheads that have no clue of the struggles their parents and especially grandparents and older generations had to face. They think it's racism if the coach takes them out of the ballgame. They've never had to eat at a segregated lunch counter or ride on a segregated bus or have the Klan come to town. And so they toss that word around like it's nothing. I'm sure that Martin Luther King fought the battles he did and ultimately gave his life so that word could come back in heavy rotation. Yeah, there's still some "white" folks that use the word in a hateful manner. But "black" folks who choose to keep it alive just give them one more excuse.

    Who cares...what a big loss to the radio world.

    For the record though, I didn't think she said anything wrong and her point was valid.

    I first and only heard of Dr. Laura when I was in Seattle in 1995 so I can't say I am a fan of hers but I didn't hear what was so wrong with what she said. I listened to the whole call and this a lot to do about nothing. Like she said black men can get away 24/7 saying it to one another, but as soon as a white person says it, even if it is only being used like DR Laura used it, we are crucified. It is just amazing how afraid people are of a word.
    As for Howard and Robin, I didn't hear what they had to say about it but I don't think Howard can really rip her a new one for it. When he was on radio the word ****** was used on his show on a daily basis. Not necessarily by him, but by sound bites. One in particular was of someone saying "****** please". Whats the difference.
