Indecency defined

Yesterday, President Bush signed new legislation to increase fines for "broadcast indecency," as reported in the Washington Post. Broadcasters who violate standards will have to pay fines ten times as high as they did so far. Let's not have a first amendment debate right now. Let me say what I think is indecent:
"It's just a number."
That is what Tony Snow said when he was asked about the number of american soldiers who had died in Iraq. That number reached 2500. "it's just a number." A naked breast on TV can stir you, but if this doesn't make you cry, you have no heart.

If you think they are people, you can read their names on dailykos.
