A propos prissy-ness 

Following on from Chris's entry on prissy-ness in the US, I see Robert Scoble at Microsoft is also pretty appalled by the response to the 1 second breast exposure - under the heading Ashamed to be an American he writes
Our society is screwed up.

By the way, I want some compensation. I hurt my thumb on my Tivo remote control's rewind button. Heh. I wish my Tivo had a zoom control. :-)

Speaking of which, why is it OK for General Motors to make hundreds of millions of dollars off of pornography (do you realize who owns the satellites that deliver most adult videos) but it's not OK for Janet Jackson to show her boob?
What I keep reminding myself is the extraordinary diversity of the US, and that the bizarre machinations of some of its mass media should not confuse tarring the entire population with the same brush. There are plenty of passionate progressive voices out there too.
