The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra has canceled a “Dukes of Hazzard” themed show due to the racist nature of the Confederate flag imagery. The stars of the series, John Schneider and Tom Wopat, have segued into musical careers since the show ended production in 1985. Schneider says the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra canceled a planned “Dukes”-themed appearance after contracts were signed because some in the community found the show racist and offensive.

Naomi Campbell’s beau Terrence Howard asked a leggy blonde to pop the zits on his back with her teeth. Oooooookay. MSR reports, you decide… But we’ll help. You should decide that the world is going to hell when a NYC newspaper decides that this non-story, from the rotted mouth of a cabbie, with no corroboration or merit, warrants the ink/pixels spent on it. And you should also decide that if it takes 4 writers to report this stuff, that jumping off a bridge isn’t such a bad idea.
