Well,looking at the bright side,he can't get any uglier in the ways he thinks and looks,maybe the cancer can be overcome and he'll improve in both those areas.

Do the highs and lows of one's life need to be debated upon a cancer diagnosis? I'll leave that work to others and simply pray and hope the I-Man gets through this. Sure, the comment about the college players was reprehensible but he apologized and made his peace with them over it. Anyone who is still stuck on that is tripping.

So funny how the same people who are offended by him, have a worse attitude than he does. Talk about Karma? NO one deserves to have cancer....

This goes to show you that sometimes you have to let things go and let God handle your business. This man has been cruel to so many people and you can't help but think that he is being handed his punishment. Be careful what you do to others because you may need their prayers one day.

I would never joke about someone getting cancer or any other sickness. I've known quite a few men with it & they have done well.

America--wake up listen to some of these mean evil people-anyone who wishes bad on a person is worst then anything he might have said. how hateful--but then that is the left wing in this country--they think it's ok to bash everyone else--but if someone else does it to them oh my God.

Get over yourselves--all you hate talkers are no better then Imus was in his remarks.--it makes me sick.

Mr. Imus--please take care of yourself- I will pray for you and your family--don't listen to the haters.

My thoughts and prayers are with him. I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone. One of my friends recently died of brain cancer. It's incideous (sp).. She was only 68..
