the ironic part of the matter is that he could have been a good Democrat either in the northeast or West Coast.

You're kidding right? Pre-teen? I have two teen-age daughters, who also have friends, and let me just say, I've NEVER seen a PRE-teen that looked like the woman (my guess - she's between 20 and 23) in the T-Shirt ad. Beyond saying that, let me ask, are you really that much of a prude? Have you ever been to a public pool or the beach? OH MY! LOOK AT ALL THE SKIN!
In marcomm, presentation is EVERYthing. We're not talking kids playing at a pool in that image. The one they had on the page when i first saw their ad was even worse. I tried to get back to it but it had been replaced; perhaps they cycle them. Nonetheless, since we're really talking about the realm of FANTASY (from and upon which all sexual action is bourne), what do you think the intent of the ad is, what is the SUGGESTED age of the girl? Also, is it a sexual ploy or not? As parents we cannot afford to be in denial, can we? I'm not advocating censureship, here. I'm advocating responsible advertising, and public outrage about where our culture is being led. Blessed papa that you are, good father, please review this article for the sake of your daughters - http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5gsCvKfG2h... . We have been systematically culturally desensitized.

So, if people watching that news service buy more if they see a sexual come-on from a female who seems about 14 to them, then so be it. Let the cards fall where they will? My initial question TO YOU remains - any ideas about how to get to the root of the issue so we can, TOGETHER, eliminate pedophilia from the behavior of our species? That is our common goal, isn't it?

BTW, i myself have enjoyed frequenting nudist camps. Prudishness has nothing to do with it.

The "seat" isn't cursed. Those who occupy it made bad choices. Both Mark and the Dem who replaced him (who was a real JERK).
