Idiot of the week

Last week, Ava and C.I. called out the sexist Undercurrents and it's idiotic host. This was a very popular feature. But we got twelve e-mails late Saturday night and early Sunday from readers nominating Gregg McVicar for idiot of the week.


Apparently his sexism is in part a result of great holes in his knowledge base. Saturday's five hour program included Aretha Franklin's "Think." After the song played, he would declare it "the song made famous by The Blues Brothers, the cafe scene."

Really? Aretha's song that hit number one on the soul charts in 1968 and number 7 on the pop charts the same year and was played by pop and soul and oldies stations in all the years since was "made famous" by a scene in a film that grossed less than $60 million at the box office? Really?

12 Third Estate Sunday Review readers name him idiot of the week (Jane, Michael, Micah, Jorje, Tammy, Cantu, KeShawn, Gilbert and Liang).
