I think you missed my point entirely. I am not an
advocate of censorship.
If I could write the law, Garth could sing whatever
he wants as long as the volume wasn't loud enough
to impair hearing ability.
The "gangsta rappas" could also spew their venom
so long as they operated within safe sound levels.
The reason I wrote the note about Satanism, Crime,
and Heavy Metal is because the incidents in Mississippi
dramatize the issue. There are no doubt many who want
to see something done about violence in entertainment.
I think that legislating mandoator safe sound levels at public
events is a Constitutionally appropriate way to confront this
problem and minimize the influence of these groups on society
-- without outright censorship of content.
<< Although the country concerts can get a bit loud. >>
You are so right, and this is no more excusable than what
the rappas and heavy metal rockers do.
