    I think it is a disgrace what they are doing to Paula Deen. I am sure everyone has used the racial slur once in their lives and many other racial slurs aimed at several nationalities. She admits it was a mistake on her part especially since she is a well known personality. I do not know what ever happened to forgive and forget. She has apologized several times but I think the media was out to get her. There are no or few saints in this world, let’s not forget this everyone of us makes mistakes in our lives. It was a chain reaction with the networks, publishers and retail stores to drop her immediately. I will discontinue my food network magazine and any other connections with the food network.
    shame on you!
