Salon.com News | Paralyzed Broadcasting System

Salon.com News | Paralyzed Broadcasting System:
"The controversy surrounding the children's series 'Postcards From Buster,' featuring a cartoon bunny who, in one episode, visits Vermont to make maple syrup and meets children from two families headed by lesbian couples, generated headlines last week when incoming Education Secretary Margaret Spellings lambasted the episode as inappropriate."

I have an uncle who wouldn't let his kids watch "Sesame Street" because it showed black kids and white kids playing together. In Pasadena, Tx where I grew up I'm sure that was more common than we'd like to think. Still I never thought that would be the mentality of the folks running the country. Yet, here we are. Suddenly it's like D.C. 2005 is Birmingham 63 or even Pasadena 74....
I don't understand why folks can't get it through their head...
all us folks, every one of us, is stuck here and we're stuck here together. The sooner we start acting like it and looking out for each other instead of trying to find ways to marginalize and ostracize each other the better off we'll ALL be...
grrr...

Funny you should mention that...
2008 will be the first time I'm legally old enough to run...and I am...
some of you already know my platform...
it has one plank...
"I will use America's nuclear arsenal to destroy the world."
I hope to be America's first genuine honest super-villian president.
