Thankfully Times Have Changed...

I know we all kvetch about the disintegration of American society, but there are many things that needed to change...

Ed McMahon was on FNC yesterday hawking his new book. I am no fan, but he was talking about some things I found pretty interesting. The first was that when he started in television (1957) they were not allowed to use the word "pregnant" for the first three years. They had to say "expecting" or "in the family way." I'd love to know the thought process behind that one...

Also, he was talking about America's reaction to the first "interracial couple" (Do you know who it was before you keep reading?). Desi and Lucy Arnaz. He said the network was inundated with mail blasting them for subjecting America to this couple... Crazy stuff huh?
