You Couldn't Make It Up - No.3

It's a morning for them.... In today's LA Times there's a story about a former head of HBO (Home Box Office) who had a problem with a scene in the first season of "The Sopranos" where Tony Soprano kills a guy while touring colleges in Maine with his daughter Meadow. Albrecht worried viewers would be turned off, witnessing the show's protagonist murder a man in cold blood. Err, it's about the Mafia who kill people. They are not some bunch of people who deep down love animals, babies and the mums, who are somehow forced into killing people. It's a weird world where audiences love this kind of stuff and then wonder why we have some of the problems we have.
