"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Nearsighted White Trash Steps Up

Rather than bothering to come up with my own opinion, I'll just link to the sfgate.com article deriding all this Janet Jackson OMG WON'T SUMONE THINK OF TEH CHKLREN?!? nonsense.

Recently someone complained about how often American media uses the word "tragedy" to describe things that aren't.

Janet Jackson's rancid boob on the telly for half a moment isn't a tragedy.

How many Americans have died in this most recent invasion of Iraq? How many Iraqis were killed for no good goddamn reason?

We just can't be fucked to care until its in our face, on fire, and all 110 stories of it are collapsing.

If you die when there's no one watching
and your ratings drop and you're forgotten
If they kill you on their TV
You're a martyr and a lamb of God

It's okay. The people who are whining about it now? "The children, the children!" "It's not wholesome TV like it used to be!" Yeah. Their sons are all going to become gay.

And why? Because their parents kept going on and on and on and on about how horrible it is to see breasts.

Payback's a bitch.
