Juan...


...Williams from NPR was fired for making a comment about how Muslims on airplanes make him nervous.  I have been listening to Juan for many years and I have always appreciated his clear, concise review of the news.  I knew that he was also working for FOX News but I never watch Fox News so I have never seen or heard him there.   When an on-air personality suddenly leaves after being part of my life and in my home on a nearly daily basis I feel the loss.  I am not making a judgement about his wisdom in his Muslim comment but I am letting you know about my opinion of him as a reporter.  I believe in the First Amendment to our great Constitution that gives us the right to free speech among other things but I guess that free speech is not really free when someone is paying you for your opinion.  I am reminded of the old saying, "You dance with them who brought you."  If you are dining at the table the you should agree with the person who bought the meal.  Juan did not do that and now he is walking down the road kicking rocks.  Been there, done that.  Good luck my friend.
