...and, furthermore, there shall be no nipple exposure, nor aureole exposure, nor exposure of any part thereof, to the virgin eyes of the public...

We MUST protect the CHILDREN.    Think of the CHILDREN.  My God, what are we exposing our CHILDREN to?

As if any 6 year old hasn't heard and used such words in any school.

I thought they were supposed to be looking for terrorists, etc. This guy must really have had nothing to do that day. Probably one of those frequently jammed two meter CB Freq's that someone sent 259 letters to Riley about.

I was thinking about a new law. How about making it illegal to hear profanity?

Well, that just might happen.  Traditionally, the FCC regulated the TRANSMISSION of radio signals.  A few years ago congress declared federal jurisdiction over RECEPTION of radio signals an well, and it is now illegal to LISTEN, in the privacy of one's home on one's own receiver,  to certain radio stations, according to the EPCA.

This is equivalent to making it illegal to LOOK while someone stands in front of a window and undresses.

It wouldn't take a giant step to extend the law making it illegal to "willfully listen" to obscene, indecent or profane radio or TV transmissions.

Yup. One more step past that cellphone crap signed by Raygun.

Something like Electronic Privacy ?? Act. The crux (flawed im my opinion) Congress used to pass the thing was that cell phone users had the same "expectation of privacy" as they did when using wireline phone. To a bonehead user, a phone is a phone.

In some localities it is illegal to subscribe to and receive pornographic material by mail. I belive in some of those same localities it may also be illegal to subnscribe to or view pornographic material on the Internet.  Yes, looking can get you in trubble.
