Seems like an over-reaction to me. I think the editors shuld have simply apologized for an editing error, not fired the man, and let that be teh end of it.

Unless of course he's a Democrat which means he is Evil. PURE EVIL. And should have been fired immediately.

OOPS. The last paragraph was a joke and an editing error. It should not have appeared in the above post. Just disregard it.

Considering that the "joke" that went out unedited was to refer to the couple as "Big H*M* Dads", I can see where their employers might be reasonably peeved enough to hand them their walking papers.

I just posted the article for the irony.

As a gay man, the day I can't tell gay jokes will be the day I sign-on to the revolution. lol

There's always a time and place for such, but on unedited copy about to be posted to your your company's website, even he saw that punch line coming.
