There are some stories that are magnets for idiocy. The Juan Williams story is one of them:
It was idiotic for Williams to say that he gets nervous when Muslims board airplanes.
It was idiotic for NPR to fire Williams for saying something stupid.
It was idiotic for Britt Hume to say that NPR fired Williams because he appears regularly on Fox News. And even more idiotic for Hume to call Williams a Bill Cosby liberal.
