TWO things to think about today!

Hey, I got two goodies to consider today!

The first is from the First Amendment Center…

''We live in an age of offense. The cardinal sin today is to offend; the clearest badge of victimhood is to be offended.''
- Jeff Jarvis, media commentator, 2004

Yes, that’s right… Jeff Jarvis from www.buzzmachine.com

And the second is from the Daily Wav.

"Comedy should provoke! It should blast through prejudices, challenge preconceptions! Comedy should always leave you different than when it found you. Sure, humor can hurt, even alienate, but the risk is better than the alternative: a steady diet of innocuous, child-proof, flavorless mush! Demand to be challenged, to be offended, to be treated like thinking, reasoning adults! And raise your children to be the same! Don't let a comedian, a network, a Congressional committee, or an evil genius take away your freedom to laugh at whatever you want."
– Duckman (Jason Alexander) from “Duckman”

Check them out and feel free to sound off about them!
