Lady Godiva Was a Freedom Rider

So, I've been watching reruns of "Maude" on my fabulous Comcast In-Demand cable, and a thought occurred to me...there's no way in hell that this sitcom would ever be allowed in today's ultra-conservative era. I'm not a political person, but as someone in the entertainment/media industry, I have a slight interest in the frightening direction this country heading towards. We are living in a time when Mickey Rooney's 70+ ass can't be shown for a split second during the Superbowl. Actually...I'm in favour of NOT seeing Mickey Rooney's naked ass, but I do fear that we are returning to our Puritanical roots and restrictions on personal freedom is not far behind.
