Our local NBC affiliate (KBTV - 4) is one of four stations out of 230 NBC affiliates nationally who has taken it upon themselves to save my mortal soul by not airing The Book of Daniel.
I hadn't given any thought to whether or not I was actually going to watch this program until I found out that the decision had been made for me and the entire southeast Texas television viewing public. I cannot begin to fathom the arrogance of a station manager who arbitrarily makes the decision that I (along with 250,000 other southeast Texans) should not see this program. I haven't been told what I can and cannot watch on television since about 1963.
Whether or not this program is suitable for viewing is a decision to be made within each individual household. Next thing you know, these bastards are going to be telling us it's against the law to smoke marijuana in the privacy of our homes and that certain sexual acts between consenting adults are also illegal.
