36. The CBS board of directors is weighing the situation and mulling things over.
In other words, determining how much revenue will be lost from embarrassed advertisers.

My opinion? He's toast at CBS, also.

Hopefully he will head down to New Mexico permanently and get a job at some redneck radio station, where he can play Lucinda Williams and Big and Rich to his heart's content, and still spew his venom in between.
