My pal Kailani at An Island Life has devised a great meme, Aloha Friday based upon a very popular term used in Hawaii when island residents take it easy and look forward to the upcoming weekend – kind of like T.G.I.F. The meme involves no long posts, no deep soul searching revelations . . . just a little fun.
Each Friday, Kailani posts a simple question or topic of conversation. Visitors leave a comment on Kailani’s site and then post a question or short discussion topic on their own site. Participants visit each other’s sites and respond with a comment! Even if you do not post a question or topic on your site, you can still play by simply leaving a comment!Here’s my question for this edition:
Honolulu-based “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” the highest-rated reality show on cable television, has been pulled from the airwaves “for the foreseeable future” in light of Duane “Dog” Chapman’s use of a racial epithet in a private telephone conversation with his son. (You can listen to the recorded conversation by clicking here, but the recording is uncensored and contains vulgar language in addition to the racial slur.)
Dog has already expressed remorse, apologized and asked for forgiveness, and vowed to take any action necessary to “repair the damage.”
Should “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” like Don Imus, be returned to the air? Why? If not, why not?
