RE STUART Burgh's April 18 letter:

Rush Limbaugh does not use racial epithets - he has the most diversified staff in broadcasting, they would be the first to bean him if he did.

He called Ray Nagin "Mayor Naygor" once. Since Naygor is a bona fide surname, I believe it was just a mistake. Rush mostly called him Ray "School Bus" Nagin and "Knucklehead" Nagin.
