    Two of them.
    FCC Commissioner Powell and NFL Commissioner Tagliabue.
    Both upset over the artists Janet Jackson and the teen dance idol's halftime antics.
    I guess neither Commissioner appreciates art?
    They should know that the commerce of art is the only part of commerce protected by the First Amendment.
    Art is not for the common folk to understand, it is only for us to appreciate and be amazed by.
    And pay for with tax dollars, for that matter, if a willing paying audience can't be found.

    except for that this "art" you speak off was during the most watched television event of the year, during a TV-PG rated program, and seen by houndreds of thousands of children who do not need to see this "art" during the Super Bowl.

    There is a place and time for everything, and that was not it. i hope the FCC fines CBS, Janet Jackson, and Justin Timberlake a lot of money. What they did was tasteless for the forum it was done on, and then to deny it was planned is spineless.

    If it was truelly art, they would have admitted to it...........

    It is if they say its art.
    That's in the Constitution.
    Under freedom of speech.
    Speech=art=whatever the self-styled artist says is art.
    Where would we be without art?

    I think the original post was sarcasm.

    Rare art painting by Rembrant or Van Gogh - $5,000,000

    A brief glimpse of Janet Jackson's right boob - Free

    Watching a missile armed with "non existant" WMDs fly up Cottonbowel's bowels - PRICELESS

    Her tit was pretty white. Do you think she goes to the same doctor as her brother. Weird?

    I am still trying to figure out how a white man like Michael Jackson can have two black parents and so many black siblings.

    I suspect there was a peckerwood in the woodpile somewhere along the line.

    (Incidently, for all you right wingers here, since I know you have no sense of humor, THAT WAS A JOKE.)
