A conservative San Francisco radio talk show was fired just six weeks after he went on the air because of a string of anti-gay remarks he made on the air. KSFO''s J. Paul Emerson who was hired in order to boost the station''s dismal ratings was fired yesterday after an overwhelmingly negative listener response to his statements that homosexuals are "sick" and "pathetic" and people with AIDS should be quarantined. "He is not returning," Julie Hoover, a spokeswoman for the Capital Cities spokeswoman, told the Associated Press. Emerson had been criticized by many in the Bay Area, including San Francisco''s Board of Supervisors, and Senator Dianne Feinstein, a favorite target of his.
