  • Again, I find it fascinating that all this news about Janet Jackson's breast is hitting the news, but yet there are no federal investigations into "Fan Killed After Sports Game."

    Which is a greater tragedy? A child watching tv seeing an exposed breast at a great distance (not even a close up), or someone dying after a sports game?

      Is there any evidence the Boston police can't handle the vehicular homicide case? Why should the feds get involved there?

      On the other hand, the alternatives to the FCC handling the breast issue (I might want to rephrase that) are 1) every local jurisdiction deals with the local CBS affiliate according to "community standards", or 2) we give up on restricting TV content. The latter appeals to my libertarian side, but isn't terribly realistic.
