It seems to me that Feather was on an unnecessarily high horse to publicly chastise Jackie Mason.
I find it hard to believe Mr. F. never said something he thought was funny, only to wish he'd bitten off his tongue instead?
Just because he's Jewish doesn't mean he's more sensitive to Mason's gaffe than non-Jews. The poor guy suffered enough. Let Feather stick to his jazzy reviews. Sometimes musicians hit lousy notes they wish they hadn't too.
