Having a "Case Number"

So, here's what I did about it...

It will accomplish nothing but make me feel better, I'm sure, so I'm not one of those "good people who do nothing" from the Edmund Burke quotation. ("All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.")

To whom it may concern:

I am disappointed and angry about the sexually-explicit commercials that aired during the Super Bowl.

We were hosting a family-friendly Super Bowl party in our home, and a roomful of children and adults were shocked and embarrassed to see the scantily-clad women you chose to air during this broadcast.

There is enough raunchy stuff on TV. Please keep it away from the eyes and minds of young children enjoying "the biggest football game of the year" with their parents.

I was dismayed by the raunchy ads--some of them were really bad. Our society is going down the tubes. PG-13 movies are now like R movies. We took our kids to see Marley and Me--big mistake. Last night we went to see Coraline, and even in that, there were a couple of scenes with these grotesquely fat women (okay, I know they are puppets) in minimal attire. I thought, "Was this necessary?"
Keep up the good fight,
