Maybe Janet Didn't Show Enough?

So here we all sit -- like the proverbial frog in the pot of cool water, with the flame of decadence being slowly turned up. Over the last 40 years, we've seen the enveloped being pushed and pushed until it's hardly recognizeable. Slowly but inexorably, we're being dragged down into the sewer.

Only an idiot would believe that what happened during Sunday's Stupor Bowl was unintentional and unforeseen. Believe that, and we've got some prime real estate in Florida and a bridge in Brooklyn we'd like to sell you.

But maybe it's too bad that Janet didn't just rip off the whole outfit (a la Britney) and bare all. Maybe that would have finally galvanized the American public to demand of public figures something resembling decorum. Not thru government action, but thru boycotts of sponsors and networks. As the late Sen. Everett Dirksen used to say, "When I feel the heat, I see the light".

As it is, the water only got a couple of degrees warmer, and in a few weeks everyone will have gotten used to it.
