: : : NY-based radio star, Don Imus announced today that he has Stage 2 prostate cancer. He did not talk about the prognosis.

: : To "What goes Around"..NO ONE deserves this...

: gun-toating imus just threatened to shoot "coworker" jay severin. its stuff like this that makes it hard to defend the guy.

: (NECN: Boston, Mass.) - Radio talk show host Don Imus was in Boston today to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. His nationally-syndicated morning show was aired live from The Wilbur Theater, but it's what happened off the air that's making headlines.

: WTKK radio host Jay Severin tells an NECN source that Imus threatened to shoot him if he didn't leave the stage.

: An Imus spokesman told The Boston Herald that Imus did say he would shoot Severin, but claims it was said in jest.

: The two have been at odds lately, ever since Severin decided to stop appearing as a regular guest on Imus.

: After Severin left the stage this morning, Imus lashed out at him on the air.

: This information is from Matthew Hiltzik, Imus' spokesperson:

: "Don was obviously joking. It was clearly a figure of speech. This speaks volumes about Mr. Severin's desperation for attention; that he would pretend to have taken this seriously. Unless, of course, he was afraid he would be shot him with a pencil."

so, and, yeah?
