Boy, this guy at KNFO needs to go

Dear Editor:

I can’t let this one go: Last week after the debate, this commentator, Thom Hartman, on KNFO described a segment where Romney said he has “five boys.” Hartman launched into an implication that the use of the term “boy” is somehow a slanderous racist reference to his black counterpart on the stage by Romney. Hartman asked, “Why use the word ‘boy’ instead of ‘son?'”

This moron used the last few neurons in his pea brain to draw a conclusion of racism in Romney’s use of the term “boy.” I don’t know about you, but if I am lucky enough to see my boy when he is old and gray, he’ll still be my “boy.”

Now look, I can certainly accept opposing viewpoints as much as the next guy, but this guy’s half-baked assertions, innuendoes, and outright lies are unacceptable.

I’ve heard this lunatic’s preposterous tirades on occasion, but this is as much as I can stand. I want to continue to support local radio, but I remember this guy replaced an even more acerbic host some time ago. Surely there must be a progressive voice out there that doesn’t need this kind of outrageous rhetoric to get the point across.

I hope KNFO comes to its senses and gets rid of this character. It’s ruining what is otherwise a good spot on my radio dial.
