The Missourian in its weekend edition asked the question “on the street” for opinions on the fairness of what has happened to Paula Deen, who had a food preparation show on the Food Network and has become a self-declared “victim” — damaged by the loss of sponsors because she said in a court deposition that years ago she used the N-word. That is politically incorrect. The deposition was taken because of an employee discrimination lawsuit. Without sponsors, a TV show is dead. Deen, 66, was fired.

The Missourian sampling of just seven people at the library who were asked, “Has Paula Deen Been Treated Fairly?” probably should be called a measurement of sorts of common opinions. Six of the seven, more or less, said her treatment has been unfair.
