And another thing

There is this K-Tel commercial airing now, promoting a CD for kids, it's called something like K-Tel Pop for Kids 5. I shudder to think there are four previous CDs but mostly that there were four other commercials. The ad has about a dozen 9 and 10 year-old boys and girls, the girls all tarted up and the boys looking like the original N'Snyc, and they are singing and dancing to these love ballads. The first time I saw the commercial I thought it was a spoof, not realizing the tv was tuned to Discovery Kids channel. I know I'm talking censorship but really, there ought to be laws. And our current laws are serving the wrong people if our government requires that Scholastic book order forms get sent home from school in brown paper packaging (as if it was pornography) yet allow such blatant advertising with a dearth of morals.

I had some time this evening to play catch up with my blogging friends. I like the new look. I've been having trouble with the audio at Paulette's class. Once the new computer is up and running, I hope there will be no more problems. Meanwhile, I signed up for Kilmer's class. Good pictures and you need to write a book. :)
