Okay, I concede. Now I'm swung back to the "no censorship" side. But it's still close. I just can't get over how crushing it would be to see my wife or son or daughter split apart six thousand miles away on the cover of a magazine. Hell, seeing that wedding photo of Ty Zeigler or whatever his name was was crushing enough for me and I never knew him.[/quote]

Sort of like democracy - its the worst alternative, except for all the others
