' If you don't like to hear the word "[cock]sucker" some 5,000 times an episode, don't watch... In "Deadwood," they use 20 words when five would be fine. And if those 20 don't get the point across, they say "[cock]sucker." '
-- "'Deadwood' and right-wing blowhards," Tim Goodman, SF Chronicle

In related news, the documentary Gunner Palace, about American soldiers in Iraq, has received a PG-13 rating from the MPAA despite including more than 30, count 'em, 30 utterances of the word "fuck."

It's a brilliant strategy for effecting cultural change: insert minor instances of subversive phenomenon into mainstream propaganda, I mean, entertainment. Like romantic comedies with homosexual supporting characters. Pretty soon, everybody's okay with the gays. Genius, I tell you! Genius!

I need to get more sleep.
