This:

It's a classic movie scenario — two sexy stars rip each other's clothes off, get busy and then later light up a couple of cigarettes in bed.

Such a charged cinematic scene could earn a film an R-rating — because of the smoking.

Films in which actors light up may soon receive the same branding as nipple flashes and cursing: Lawmakers are looking to extinguish, or at least regulate, smoking on the big screen.

Anti-smoking activists want films with smoking in them to be given an R-rating. Most lawmakers have said they'd be satisfied if movie ratings included advisory information about smoking in films like they do for foul language, sexual content and violence.


and this:

OXFORD TWP. -- Parents are outraged that six Oxford Central School teachers who were chaperones on an overnight field trip consumed alcoholic beverages.

The teachers chaperoned a three-day eighth-grade trip to Washington, D.C., and Gettysburg, Pa., during the week of May 17. In a letter sent home with students dated May 27, the teachers admitted to consuming alcohol in the presence of some students.

..."We each had one drink during this time, some in plain sight of students. Some teachers had also had a glass of wine at the dinner theater the night before. At no time were your children left without adult supervision, nor was their safety jeopardized in any way."


prove that America is now, officially, the most hypocritical, candyass place on the goddamned planet.

Get over yer shit, folks. It's just not worth it.

in europe, this would be a non-issue.

Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be an American.
 
Once I get my island nation going, this kind of shit will be punishable by confiscation of any prize property along the rim of the volcano and a solid kick in the privates...
