Dave the Spazz

Regarding that Cary Grant MP3: Those three notes (AKA the "NBC Chimes") are G-E-C, which stand for General Electric Company, who owned NBC at the time.

Station Manager Ken

That Details photograph is actually a really apt metaphor for Kevin Martin's FCC: Martin stands on an unmade bed in a hotel room watching the VP of XM and a Washington lobbyist as they play "Texas Hold 'Em."

Listener James from Westwood

I would so totally own those three at hold'em. Of few things am I surer.

Rufus

Don't forget Ted Stevens fine ruminations on Net Neutrality.

Dale Hazelton

Talk about Manilow Madness! My sister-in-law lives in Buffalo where they were having a problem with loud deviants hanging out in a certain waterfront park area, being insolent and whatnot. Someone got the idea to pump nonstop Barry over speakers at the park, and ....problem solved!

Does anybody have the Cary Grant "song" where he basically toasts life, intoning "Lchaim, Nostrovia..." it's incredible.

CBS is correct in their claim that the "Without A Trace" fine is invalid. The Parents Television Council is responsible for 98% of all TV indecency complaints to the FCC, yet most of these complaints are automated e-mails from people who never saw the show in question.

As if that outrage is not enough, the PTC only claims 1 million members, yet it games the FCC system to make TV content decisions for Americans in 109 million TV households.

1 million out of 109 million plus. If that's democracy in action, then my neighborhood's peewee soccer team will win the World Cup on Sunday.

Check out TV Watch, at www.televisionwatch.org, for a common sense voice of reason in this debate.

Urban legend. The notes G-E-C were not chosen to stand for General Electric Co.
