IMUS DUMPED FOR BAD MANNERS – KEEP YOUR NAPPY IN YOUR LAP!
|Q:||What do I do with my napkin?|
|A:||As soon as everyone is seated, unfold your napkin and place it across your lap, folded, with the fold toward you. Do this discreetly without flourish. If you need to leave the table, place your napkin on your chair, folded loosely (NEVER wadded). Only after the meal is over should you place your napkin on the table to the left side of your plate (NEVER on your plate!).|
|A:||It is considered poor etiquette NOT to use your napkin. The purpose of the napkins is to keep food off your face. Use it frequently to discreetly dap or wipe (no ear to ear swiping, please) your mouth. Replace the napkin on your lap loosely folded, not wadded and not stuffed between your legs.|
|A:||If your napkin falls on the floor and it is within easy reach, retrieve it. If you are unable to retrieve the napkin without drawing attention to yourself, ask the server for another one.|
Apologizes For ‘Nappy ‘Hos’ Comment
This morning, Don Imus apologized for calling the Rutgers’ basketball team “nappy ‘hos”.
“I Want to take a moment to apologize for an insensitive and ill-conceived remark we made the other morning regarding the Rutgers women’s basketball team. It was completely inappropriate, and we can understand why people were offended. Our characterization was thoughtless and stupid, and we are sorry.”
The apology came after the National Association of Black Journalists president Bryan Monroe, vice president and editorial director for Ebony and Jet, had called for his head:
“Has he lost his mind? Those comments were beyond offensive. Imus needs to be fired. Today.”
The “Nappy ‘Hos’ Mr. Imus was referring to were later identified in Samples’ Lounge in Nassau, the Bahamas wasting time.

DON IMUS – “NAPPY HEADED ‘HOS”
4/10 ~ AN EDITOR’S NOTE – “I believe those upset should just chill a bit. Don Imus made a statement in the flash of a New York minute. Oops! Did I just say that? Please, if you live in New York, I am not suggesting you are too fast. Conversely, if you live outside of New York, there is certainly no implication that you are too slow. If you reside off the planet, how’s the weather?” 😉 Dick Morris touts his anemic “pay-per-click” web site and Bo Dietl debate:
