an outlet..

I have decided to use this outlet, since I don't really have any other that 
will reach a group of people, to express my outrage and disgust and anger over 
the media frenzy about what I'm gonna call: "the boob".  

at a time where this country is expected to reach a record deficit of $500 
billion this year, the bush administration "hinting" that WMD in iraq don't 
exist (only cheney and rumsfeld seem to have hope that it still does), meanwhile 
it is costing over 500 american lives and thousands more of iraqi civilians, 
about over 1,000 people in the third world, as i'm typing this, have died from 
either hunger or AIDS, John kerry is winning most of the democratic primaries, 
and yet "the boob" is the biggest story this country is dealing with. who 
cares?! and to top it all off, CBS have decided to ban "miss J." from the grammy 
awards because of this incident. she was expected to just simply present and 
introduce a tribute to Luther vandross. timberlake however is expected to go on 
and I feel if he is so smart, he will protest this by either making a 
statement during his performance or drop out of the program altogether. how come 
eminem was allowed to go on when he performed with elton John but Janet isn't? 
ratings perhaps? 

what has happened to this "free nation"? a country where it seems violence on 
TV is more acceptable than sex or nudity. i'd rather have the sex and nudity 
than the violence thank you. sorry if I sound like a "hippie". i've nothing 
against violence on TV really, just seems unfair that a stupid "boob" and bono 
cursing at the golden globes last year gets more press. I think 9/11 is a good 
example of violence on television. but that's just me. 

agree or disagree with me if you want, I just needed an outlet to get all 
this off my chest. it's very rediculous. why should a "free nation" like america 
having censoring on, let's say, the osbournes but when it's aired in england, 
all the cursing is left in and no one makes a big deal about it over there?
