  • The new, currently in-production Showtime cable series "Weeds" with Mary-Louise Parker would surely be considered "indecent" and in need of pre-emptive censorship by Stevens and others like him.

    After all, how could the self-righteous, self-appointed "protectors of American decency" allow Adult Subscribers to watch a series about a widowed, suburban, PTA member Mom who sells "Weeds" (pot) to make ends meet?
