    KXNO and Taps Issue

    The playing of taps is a sacred honor bestowed upon our fallen heroes . . especially during this time of conflict in which young Americans are still returning home in flag drapped coffins.

    KXNO did you not just for a moment think. . that your feeble, immature, and foolish attempt at humor (i.e. playing taps in your various shock jock segments in anticipation of the Big XII's demise) . . . . just might be offensive and hurtful to still grieving families . . who have lost loved ones? Especially here in central Iowa so close to Camp Dodge where soldiers continue to ready themselves for deployment?

    Do you people have no shame or sensitivity . . especially during a time of war for many of our youth deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Where is the adult supervision at KXNO?

    The death of the Big XII and a sarcastic dig at the death of ISU athletics?

    I don't think any disrespect was meant. Though it did come off a bit unclassy.

    Maybe not. But it is disrespectful. Like people talking during the National Anthem and leaving their hats on their heads.

    This song with some b12 radio and tv calls on top of it would be better if the B12 sinks.

    So what if I haven't? You think just because i have never attended a military funeral that I don't understand the meaning of taps? I do, I just think trashing KXNO and saying they disrespected the military in this situation is a GIANT stretch. Loosen up people.

    Re: KXNO and Taps Issue

    just my opinion - there are better things to point to if you are displeased with KXNO. The Taps thing was stupid and pretty immature - especially with the 6th grade giggling in the background - but this is a stretch. Turning this into a "your disrespecting the millitary" rant is a little misdirected. It's a little like this clip

    Eh, maybe you have a point, but it's not like KXNO is the first entity to play taps for something not related to the dying of soldier.
