    So, nothing in what the publisher disseminated was used to commit the murder? No "how to buy a knife", etc.?

    That does sound like a VERY unusual case.

    Yeah, that is great and all but streets are still not airwaves.

    Who cares if it is a limited common public resource? How does that even make a difference?

    Btw, how do you even get a channel on tv without cable or satellite anymore? I thought they all but destroyed that when it all went digital.

Be vulgar all you want, but not on public airwaves.
    Public nudity in the park is hardly the same as watching Janet Jackson expose her boob on CBS.

    It's good that you have no idea what you're talking about. That makes me feel better.

    It does though. If you truly believe what you're saying, presumably you'd place no restrictions on your kids from watching porn. If you do or would, then your argument is disingenuous.

    It's free public access, which the public has a right to regulate, not private cable. My problem with it is that it was rapey, but the nudity is against public free access regs.

    So how many channels can you pick up on your old 1984 TV these days without cable or satellite?

    About 10? For free. It's like a street, anyone can use it.
