While I agree that free-speech is a corner stone of American politics and way of life, it must be understood that cornerstones are nothing without an organized structure. Free speech means you can say whatever you want. But that doesn't mean that there won't be a penalty for it. You may have to pay a fine. Censoring shows such as Howard Stern is rediculous, because he's been around so long, stopping it now would be a bit hypocrytical. But that doesn't mean we can't make an effort...perhaps play him in a later time slot? We have prime time television, why not prime time radio? Finally, parents need to take some damned responsiblity, and the government needs to let them do just that. We're far to fast in this country these days to take responsibility out of the hands of parents, and governmentally raise their children through new rules guidelines and restrictions. Case in point: "Let's get violence out of video games." I'm not trying to start a different thread, that's just an example. What I'm saying is, don't shoot the person selling a product (Howard Stern, for example, is selling his personality) that they are legally allowed to sell. Instead, give the parents responsible for the child a poke to the ribs...make them more aware and decisive. As adults we can more easily choose what we subject ourselves to...it's our job to protect our own children as we see fit.
