One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked, "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

The young women who were offended by the Imus remarks have accepted his apology. Maybe Don Imus, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can learn from them which wolf to feed.

Imus was sacrificed for our national shame. If the rule is, "You can practice racism, but you can't publicly acknowledge it," then no one will survive.
