So, what would you rather have your children see? I say children, since the FCC feels they know better than anyone else. Apparently, as adults we're unable to moderate our own viewing habits.

The dead bloated corpses that we've been seeing on the news for 2 weeks from the Earthquake and Typhoon, or the bare ass on a 5 year old episode of NYPD Blue that will cost ABC $1 million?

I remember that episode.. and it was a pretty nice ass.  I thought at the time that NYPD Blue was pushing the envelope a little, but I figured that the show was clearly for adults, and it was on at 10:00 at night.  Anyway, the ass might have been a little inappropriate, but damn.. let it go.. its been 5 years.

I always wonder what people's real motivations are. Like you said, it's been 5 years. Why now? A local DJ was just fired because he played a racist song over 2 months ago. He played it at least two more times after that w/o anyone saying anything. Not even the station management, that now acts so self-righteous once they fired him. The Imus thing was like a week old before anyone cared.

The ass in question:
NSFW - but totally worth it.

At least I think this is the one in question.  I know we saw Sipowicz fat hairy ass in season 2 when he was shot while banging a hooker.  I don't think that incident was quite as offensive however, since no one was turned on by it.

But your right about the moral minority dictating decency and telling us what we are supposed to be offended by.  Remember a couple years ago when CBS wanted to run Saving Private Ryan uncensored on memorial day, but backed out because all the profanity might offend the Parents Television Council (among others)?  People need to get thicker skin.
