This post reminds me of one of the many annoyances I forgot to post on in my train/zoo trip post a couple of weeks ago.
Headed down, on the morning train, Amtrak had a Disney movie playing on the overhead TV's, which was especially cool, as I had never seen this technology on public transportation before. I don't get out much. All this stuff appears to have developed in the last five years since I've flown, or taken a train anywhere.
So, anyway, here we are, two reserved train cars full of Christians with homeschooled kids of all ages, heading back home in the evening, and the televisions light up with the always wholesome and tasteful Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore, starring in 'Music And Lyrics', rated PG-13 'for some sexual content'.
Now, imagine the stink, for me, if we had been two carloads of Muslims with their children, and 'Babe, Pig In The City' had come on.
And PG-13 is the new R, and yes, there was some fuckin, and yes, the men of the group mobbed the conductor and got our televisions turned off.
I fear getting a contact STD just from looking at Drew Barrymore. Though '50 First Dates' was cute and clever, I must admit.
Anyway, take it all for what it's worth, mark another one in the 'American Civilization Is Dead' column, and let's just move on, shall we?
Please check your overhead luggage compartment before you debark.
