A job was lost. Johnny Carson only lost money for saying about the same thing on national late night TV.

It is certainly within most employers rights to set the bar for what we might call moral standards. In this case, I'm going to call that bar as too high for any reasonable purpose.

And we don't have to go very far into the early evening sitcoms to hear worse. Besides, someone needs to get a grip on all this over-reaction.
