CROSSING THE LINE: In Boston, Chad Finn writes WEEI-FM co-host Kirk Minihane is "genuinely talented, which is why it was so foolish" to make his remarks on Andrews on Wednesday. His rant was "beyond over-the-top and easily interpreted as misogynistic, and Minihane seemed to realize his mistake almost instantly when he said: 'I’m going to get in trouble for this.'" Somewhat "surprisingly, he did not get in trouble beyond having to write an apology on the station website." He had a "couple of days off scheduled already, so he is out for the remainder of the week." That is "for the best for everyone" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/18).
