When is enough enough? Don Imus got away with it; Mel Gibson and William Bennett got away with it. Now the latest in the gang — a sportscaster thinks she can just apologize for calling for the lynching of Tiger Woods and get away with it.

Why is it so acceptable in America to berate an individual based on religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity and even political affiliation publicly? I am not suggesting that we curb free speech, but how far is this going to go? When are the American people going to stand up and demand accountability from celebrities?
