The latest diatribe by talk show host Michael Savage shows once again that Savage manages the impossible: He stands out as an ignorant, hateful cretin among hosts on talk radio. As someone who has dealt with autism in my family and taught autistic children, I find his comments appalling.

It is very distressing to me that KSL Radio, which is often perceived as reflecting the values of the local LDS community, carries this garbage. It is far more damaging than "Saturday Night Live" or "Coupling." Please, anyone out there with common sense, contact KSL and encourage the station to remove Michael Savage from the air.
