Quick Saturday Observation

Call me a reactionary old fool, but I don't want to live in an America where people are punished for crank-calling the hated leader of a Communist country on live radio. There, I've said it.

Another thought: Anyone else think the increase in the size and frequency of FCC fines looks weirdly like the increase in traffic tickets when some tiny little town is strapped for cash? I mean, the Bush administration has plugged up so many other souces of revenue. It's got to come from somewhere.

Censorship as a revenue center: Discuss.
