A fired Herald columnist chatters anew

"Were you planning on stopping by the protest?" DeFede queried.

"I might."

"I won't hold you to it," he added sarcastically.

Following the mayor's call, others phoned in to vent sundry outrage. Around 8:00 a.m., a guy named Julio suggested, "We need a Boston Tea Party in this town. Taxes are out of control."

After a half-dozen others whined about traffic and high rents, producer Sandler relayed a manager's complaint that DeFede wasn't repeating the station's call letters often enough. "That's Radio 101," she said.

So how long will DeFede be in this class?

"I don't know that I want to be waking up at 4:00 a.m. in ten years," he says. "For now I have three jobs. That way I can be fired from one and still be covered."
