Museum of Broadcast Communications has announced it will induct insane bigot James Dobson into its Radio Hall of Fame. OK, so its just some podunk museum in Chicago run by a knucklehead with delusions of grandeur, but still, the only hall of fame Dobson belongs in is the Hitler Admiration Society's.

So go to DumpDobson.com and tell 'em how you feel.

Done.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

R. Wreck.....

Dobson is such a preposterous clown, I don't know if serious time should be devoted to him. The man is fully as much of a caricature as Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson ever pretended to be.

Do you think he is truly capable of doing a great deal of harm to rationality?

Only to the already irrational -- plenty of those about.

I suppose that child-beating perverts need love too, but why should we give it to them?

I am not sure... While Dobson's views are very unpleasant to me; his influence seems quite significant. He is, indeed, famous.

And the museum is called the 'hall of fame', not the 'hall of honour' or the 'hall of good guys' and he probably deserves a place in it...

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

He is "infamous" which means, of course, "more than famous".

He is "infamous" which means, of course, "more than famous".
Not exactly:
From Webster's New Unabridged International

INFAMOUS: 1 : having a reputation of the worst kind : notorious as being of vicious, contemptible, or criminal character : DETESTABLE, ABHORRENT <one of the most infamous spies and bullies of all time -- Time> <infamous outlaw> <infamous traitor> <infamous dog has got every vice except hypocrisy -- W.M.Thackeray>

2 : causing or bringing infamy : deserving hatred or detestation <infamous conduct> <infamous vices> <infamous treatment of prisoners> <men to whom totalitarianism is infamous -- Jerome Frank> <most infamous of quack nostrums -- Time>

3 : having a bad name as being associated with something disgraceful or detestable <the street outside Newgate had not obtained one infamous notoriety that has since attached to it -- Charles Dickens>

4 : convicted of an offense judged infamous <infamous person>
synonym see VICIOUS


A great deal more than famous - reprehensible, detestible, abhorrent!
That's our boy Jimmy "I wannabe fouler than Falwell" Dobson!

You haven't seen the Three Amigos - that's where the "real" definition of infamous is.

I think Dobson is an enemy of rationality, and seems to have some political clout. I just think we should take the oppotunity to make our voices heard in whatever way we can. I don't think the minute or so it takes to read the web page and sign the petition is wasted. Even if it just turns out we are tweaking his odious nose, I think its worthwhile speaking up. A clown like Dobson deserves no honor, no matter how trivial.

I did it last night. Dobson's a fundy bigot creep. Hope this helps!
