Republican Senator, Ted Stevens (Alaska), is proposing that 'Broadcast Decency Standards' should apply to pay cable channels (such as my beloved HBO). (source)
THIS is what bugs me about my party... THIS... Prudishness... Censorship... Aren't we the party of LESS government? KIDS shouldn't be watching HBO. Put a block on it or DON'T ORDER IT if it offends you --but I like it and I pay a lot for it and I don't want you, Senator Stevens, messing around with it!
