In Today's News

Now if anyone can tell me why Ken Lay hasn't been sent to jail yet.........

Bernie Ebbers did mastermind the $11bn (£5.8bn) book fiddling that torpedoed US telco WorldCom, a New York jury decided today.


and the FCC comes to it's senses - at least on this one.

WASHINGTON Mar 15, 2005 — Sure, the steamy introduction to ABC's "Monday Night Football" was titillating, showing the bare back of "Desperate Housewives" actress Nicollette Sheridan as she jumped into the arms of football player Terrell Owens.

But U.S. regulators ruled Monday the racy clip didn't violate federal indecency standards. In a unanimous decision, the five-member Federal Communications Commission said the segment "simply is not graphic or explicit enough to be indecent under our standard."


however Michael Copps is still in right field with this typical prudish statement
"There wasn't much self-discipline in this particular promotion," he said. "As stewards of the airwaves, broadcasters can and should do better."
I can just imagine the hoards of 11 year old boys overstimulated by Sheridan's bare back.
