  According to an article on the Boston Globe's web site, WRKO 9AM- 12 Noon 
host John DePetro has been suspended for 2 days for using a slur word for 
homosexual while discussing embattled Mass Turnpike chairman Matt Amorello's 
conduct in the wake of the recent tragic death in the I-90 connector tunnel 
and the resulting fallout. WRKO PD Jason Wolfe said that the station has 
zero tolerance for racial intolerance.
