Last week I heard you on nor with Brian Lehrer, and a caller asked you to shout out for a favorite charity that you support. Will you share with me the name of that charity? Thank you very much.

MMP- "epithet equivalency" is a dopey non-science. when you assume the obscenely arrogant right, of determining what is the trans-cultural offensive equivalent of a given word;your foolishness, is only exceeded by your presumptuousness. at the end of the day,these are WORDS,they don't have absolute meaning.

Whether or not you aware of it, the derogatory term "Goy" is an epithet used only by those who choose to wallow in the slough of Peasant Class prejudice; by outsiders possibly from simple ignorance, by insiders possibly in an effort to allay deserved or not feelings of inferiority.

Allowing same on your broadcasts is similar to tolerating the N word for Blacks, the M word for Jews, et al.

As to boasts of five hundred thousand Twitter connections: You too can claim an even greater number via the many Internet services that, for a small fee, supply links to mostly inactive "followers."
