Abstinence And The City

From CNN: Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted Stevens said on Tuesday he would push for applying broadcast decency standards to cable television and subscription satellite TV and radio.
In the wake of Nipplegate, Congress is seeking to increase the fines for indecency on broadcast TV and radio. But if Stevens got his wish, Howard Stern would still have to watch his mouth when he moves to Sirius Radio. “The Sopranos” would be about 10 minutes long. And I have no idea what would happen to the Spice Channel, or Spankvision, or whatever they’re calling it these days.
By the way, Ted Stevens is a Republican Senator from Alaska. And he’s 81 years old. Do you think he should be dictating what you pay to watch on TV?
