5. I see/hear censorship in programs that are broadcast on my cable tv on a daily basis.

I don't feel that I need to be protected from certain language/profanity or scenes that could be distressing. (portraying sex.violence or both) since I consider myself to be perfectly capable of
deciding what's good or not for me to see and hear.

I've traveled extensively by air and I've observed that aircraft passengers are typically more excitable as a group than most groups of people I've come in contact with. Due to that I can't fault a company
for attempting to maintain calm among people by using some censorship. I remember well that
one crying baby and one anti-smoking activist nearly ruined one flight I was on. Most of us passengers on that flight got fairly worked up and the flight crew worked hard to establish a happy outcome.

So let's all take deep breaths, take our dramamine (it acts as a tranquilizer) and if we miss out on
anything we can be happy that we're on a flight that's going to make a safe landing.
