While scanning my Google Reader this morning the headline: "Venezuela axes "The Simpsons" as bad for kids" caught my attention. It's my personal opinion that the dictatorial, socialistic leadership of Hugo Chavez is bad for Venezuelan children, but I digress. I was modestly impressed that the powers-that-be decided to drop Bart and his dysfunctional family from the airwaves, but then I read the story. Here is the opening paragraph:
Venezuela has forced U.S. cartoon "The Simpsons" of its airwaves, calling the show a potentially bad influence on children, and filled its morning slot with reruns of the beach-and-bikini show "Baywatch."
I'm wondering how the "bikini show" could be less of a "potentially bad influence on children."
