Just when I complain that there's nothing interesting going on, I find a news item on a subject near and dear to my heart: porn.

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people? As we know, I'm all for skin flicks and nudie mags, but why are people so impatient that they can't wait until they get home to get off? If nothing else, I'm looking at this as a practical matter. Unless if you have perfect control, there's a decent chance you're going to end up making a mess. Have fun explaining that the next time you take your car in for detailing.

As for those people who are getting all bent out of shape over having to watch someone else's porn, get over it. Why the fuck are you paying so much attention to what's going on in other peoples' cars, anyway? Are you telling your kids "Oh, look honey, hardcore pornography. Pay attention now, because I sure as hell am not going to explain this to you someday."

Yeah, little kids shouldn't be exposed to pornography. As Bill Maher put it, some things are for kids, and some things are not. But if your kids are exposed to porn and you don't know what to do, just do what parents always do in a sticky situation: make somethin' up. Shit, this is how we ended up with things like Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and the stork. Jesus Christ. Hey, there's another one parents made up.
