Radio personality, television host, and philanthropist Don Imus, known to fans as the I-Man, died on Friday at the Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in College Station, Texas after being hospitalized since Christmas Eve, his family reported. Associated Press reported his cause of death as complications from lung disease. He was 79.
Imus’ syndicated radio show Imus in the Morning aired on various networks from 1968 until his retirement in 2018. The show was simulcast on MSNBC television from 1996 until a racial incident in 2007 and for several years up to 2015 on the Fox Business Network. He was once named one of Time’s 25 most influential Americans, and was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
Known as a shock jock who made controversial comments, Imus was dropped in 2007 by MSNBC and CBS Radio after he referred to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “nappy headed hos.” He later apologized for the comment. Continue Reading

I wonder if potential 2020 Libertarian presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee still wants to switch to the metric system.
Personally, I prefer the customary system because I am more familiar with it. I presume most Americans feel the same way. Chafee would probably be best served to de-emphasize this issue since it was more a point of ridicule than benefit to his 2016 campaign.
Chafee, perhaps as a result of his father and time in the Senate, will always be more closely associated with the Republicans than any other party. He’s a northeastern liberal Republican in the mold of Bill Weld. Luckily for him, he’s more likable than Weld.
