While I don't support violence against any group, I think this needs to be put in the perspective of being delivered by a comedian who is trying mighty hard to sound "shocking". If we held every comedian's feet to the fire every time they said something silly/stupid/offensive/outlandish/etc., then that's pretty much all we would be doing as a society. Call him out on his comments? Sure, but keep it all in perspective. Now in fairness to Tracy Morgan, he has apologized, so I say let's all just move on and deal with actual pressing issues of the day, including those that face the Gay/Lesbian community (ranting about Tracy Morgan's routine will not solve issues of job discrimination and domestic partner benefits). What we don't need is, for example, Tracy Morgan meeting with the families of homosexual teens (I believe as suggested by GLAAD) or some other silly act meant more for show than anything else.
