    Would it be funny if they did that (calling him a murderer ect) to say the pope, GWB or North Korea's Kim Jong-il?

    Its about respect for other nations, their culture and leaders. Why should we have respect for the US if the US has none for ours?

    Not to mention the laws pertaining to recording / broadcasting private telephone converstions.

    Hope Castro sues them.

    I'll see your $20 and raise you $30. The radio station guys are
    just showing what a wet blanket Castro is. No sense of humor,
    that guy. Come to think of it those communists have about the
    same sense of humor as those people who put on those morose
    passion plays about the Last Supper. Loosen up guys. You only live once.
    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!

    Yeah, I laugh my self silly everytime people call me a murderer, especially if they have tricked me onto being broadcast live to millions at the time........

    Similar to GWB's sense of humor on the gwbush.com web site that invoked the following response.

    "There Ought to be Limits to Freedom!"
    - George W. Bush, commenting on gwbush.com web site (05/21/1999)
