Quotes of the Day for 4 February 2004 – Breasts

I know people who actually watched the football game on Sunday, and I'm told it was actually a pretty good game. I also heard from those who watched the commercials that the creative level of ads during the game was well below normal. But it all was eclipsed by Janet Jackson's mostly bare bejeweled breast. What a kerfuffle that has turned out to be! Was it tasteless? Probably. Was it planned? Certainly. Is it going to jack up sales of Ms Jackson's next album? You've gotta believe it. Does Michael Powell and the FCC have better things to do than investigate this silliness? I certainly hope so.
