The days when that cute little Jeanie character used to dream of the day she could go on TV an allow her, dare we say it, belly-button visible to a Puritan-like American audience.
When Lucy and Desi were required, I think it might have even been decreed by law, to sleep in twin beds. Little Ricky no doubt the result of Desi stumbling in after a drunken-Tropicana band fest and having his way with Lucy!
You've come a long way baby. Now there are few words which are not allowed in prime time--you know, that time which was reserved for the family to gather around the tube and watch entertainment programming like 'Mister Ed' and 'Leave it to Beaver.'
Today, even the Cookie Monster lives in fear at PBS of being cornered in some trash can molestation episode by Elmo. You don't like it....tough; get used to it cause even Big Bird is protected by all that is sacrosanct in today's modern world of Liberalism.
Big Bird's Sesame Street was a learning tool for generations of children, even before they were shuffled off to kindergarten where the facts of life lay in wait for them, even at a tender age of six. Because in today's modern world of Progressiveness, it is every six year old's right to....well, you know...have rights!
So is there any wonder or disbelief when some of our most beloved television characters like Lou Grant gets old and cantankerous, and also has selective memory loss when questioned about his participation in a Teacher's Union Progressive produced piece of trash propaganda which wages war on anyone, other than themselves, being allowed to hang on to a small portion of the fruits of their labor.
