CNN.com - Dick Clark sued for age discrimination - Mar. 2, 2004
This is nuts. I'm not a big fan of Dick Clark, but he pretty much looks like he did 20 years ago on American Bandstand. The plaintiff is two years older, and probably looks a whole lot older than Clark - like most people over seventy. But to take offense at what was written (bottom of the article) ... why are we so quick to be offended? Why are we so fast to assume we're being dissed and it's a bad thing. I read the reply and come away thinking that he's might be right, he's the boss and can do what he wants, or at least that Clark doesn't know what he's missing in not hiring "me". But to file suit - who whizzed in his cereal that morning to get that ball rolling?
