Report (from 1996) on the root causes of crime. Interesting that almost all of them end up being based in childhood.
I feel like writing a (crappy) script for one of those comedy shows:
“No, come on! Paying attention to kids isn’t what makes them turn out better, it’s choosing the correct V-Chip approved television shows. We have to watch out for nudity. Racy conversations and inference of sex is OK. Skin-tight outfits are OK. Dry humping is OK. Nothing but a bikini is OK. As long as there are no nipples shown, otherwise we’ll have a problem. Violence? I guess that’s OK. I mean, who ever watched guns being used on television thousands of times and then actually thought it was fine to do the same thing? That’s ridiculous, and it’s against the first amendment. Or the third amendment. Anyways, somewhere in the constitution it says that. And then we also have to worry about drugs! There’s a war on drugs going on, remember? But I don’t mind if my kids watch people smoking and drinking on television. Those aren’t drugs. I mean, something that’s bad for you can’t have it’s own commercials, right? — Hey Kids! I’m off to the gym and then Starbucks. Your Mom’s out somewhere. Just stay in front of the television until we get back, OK? Don’t move. Oh, and change the channel if that V thing starts flashing, OK?”
