We inform. You decide.

Rebecca Ganzak's column Thursday reminded me of the "Freedom, but…" concept too many people subscribe to today.

Ms. Ganzak apparently thinks it is fine and good that nameless, unelected bureaucrats decide for us what we can and can't watch on television.

She may even agree with many of their choices and see this as a beneficial service provided us by our nanny, the federal government.

I happen to think "America's Next Top Model" is disgusting and certainly "uncalled for." With that comment, I'm certain many readers are glad I'm not the one deciding "acceptable" content for everyone else. I am, too.

If Ms. Ganzak doesn't want her children watching YouTube, then it is her responsibility to actually do some parenting. There are numerous commercial resources available she could purchase to meet her ends.

It is ridiculous to ask the government to seize further power from its people (not to mention their money) all because clips of dudes getting hit in the crotch offend her.

Or perhaps Ms. Ganzak just isn't comfortable in a world where no one is directly over her shoulder telling her what to watch, or not watch, in this case.
