RSDS: The Argument Never Ends!

Sometimes I don’t even have to LOOK for the political angle; it just comes to me…  And sometimes, as a curator and editor of this humble blog, I have to make some difficult choices…

And sometimes, I am reminded of George Carlin‘s famous advice: “Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

And then there’s this…

And this…

And now, an editorial mea culpa:

It was I, gentle reader, who placed those two asterisks into that last panel above!

I was really conflicted about it…

I absolutely respect the integrity of an artist like Rick Stevens, but at the same time, as an ancient American broadcaster, I am haunted by the spectre of George Carlin‘s famous “Seven Dirty Words.”

Since I cannot ever be completely certain that my audience is absolutely nothing but 100 percent adult readers, I ultimately decided to make this one edit. Please believe me when I say that I do not embrace censorship casually.

Mr. Stevens has always been most generous with his artful talent, I hope and pray he doesn’t consider this minor editorial decision has gone a step  too far.
