In The Long Run, We're All Indecent

Ex-bigot and ex-blogger (!) Sam Francis would be rolling over in his grave but for the fact his huge carcass is too tightly wedged in the coffin to allow such movement.

The Talmudic boner scholars at the FCC have ruled that the Monday Night Football intro which had Sam's sheets in a knot was not indecent:

We conclude that the material in question is not patently offensive, and thus, not indecent. In particular, the "Monday Night Football" segment, although sexually suggestive, is not graphic or explicit. 15 Owens is fully dressed throughout the segment, and, with the exception of a moment when her bare back is exposed to the audience, Sheridan is at all times fully covered with a towel. No sexual or excretory organs are shown or described, and no sexual activities are explicitly depicted or described. Furthermore, the scene where Sheridan drops her towel and jumps into Owens's arms is brief. Although the scene apparently is intended to be titillating, it simply is not graphic or explicit enough to be indecent under our standard.

Meanwhile, the forced dis-integration of Mr. Francis will continue unabated for the foreseeable future.
