I'm PG-13

Online Dating

It's because I had the word guns 4 times and hurt 4 times. Neither was probably in the same post. Or maybe I wrote getting shot by a gun hurts. Who knows?

Let me see, Ann Coulter is G and I'm PG 13.

I remember when Tipper Gore started a group called the Parents Music Resource Center that wanted to get record companies to rate albums so that parents would have a better idea of what their kids were listening to.

It caused quite a controversy back in the late 80s. I personally opposed it because anything that came from Washington, DC would smack of censorship and would have a chilling influence on artistic freedom. And I noticed that it applied to rock music but nobody was going after all those great country western songs about drinking, riding trains, cheating husbands, cheating wives and sitting in jail for murder.

Anyway, Donny Osmond weighed into the controversy by pointing out that any album labeled G would probably not sell very well. A G-rated pop album would have the kiss of death on it faster than an NC-17 rating. So Osmond declared, "you will never see a G rated Donny Osmond album."

Ok, that kind of makes you want to barf. But just the same, I'd rather be a racy PG-13. And thanks to writing about the Second Amendment and guns, I am.

Go figure.
