it was ALWAYS her ball

To say "take responsibility" is good. What is NOT good is badgering young single mothers until they cry on the air and then cutting them off the line. I think Dr. Laura used the N word because she really is racist. Besides which, she's a physical therapist.

The apology should be enough

I listened to the Dr. Laura N***** segment and while I felt she did make a point about African Americans calling each other N***** it is kind of like the way we sometimes talk amongst ourselves but do not want to be called Yid by someone outside the family. So her caller had a point too. Should Dr. Laura quit, not over this. She has been an incredible help to thousands. This is no reason to deprive thousands more her insight and help. But then maybe she is just ready to quit anyway. I have learned a lot from listening to her over the years and have nothing but the best wishes for her no matter what she decides to do in the future.

So long, Dr. Laura

I have not been a faithful listener for many years. Dr. Laura is suffering from something - some kind of inner conflict perhaps. Dr. Laura overstayed her welcome. I wish her well.

Get a grip!

Get a grip people. Dr. Laura used the term correctly in defining the situation she was dealing with. The black population at large uses the term ad nauseam and we never called on the carpet for there own prejudice twards whites. STOP the PC or get played people!

You guys don't get it, do you?

Rabbi Salomon isn't really talking to Dr.Laura. What are the chances she's ever seen this website at all? The POINT is that everyone should be responsible for their actions and not run away from their problems. Actually, contrary to what people say, it does make sense when applied to her; you need to do what you believe in. If she believed that her comment was not wrong, then she should have taken a stand; if not, she should have apologized like she did, but you can't run away from your problems. Honestly, I don't think that she should be on public radio anymore; she seems to be breaking down or something. But the point still stands.
