FCC Fines In Context

Station Manager Ken at the invaluable WFMU blog gives us a little rundown of governmental fines. Guess what: "cultural pollution" fines are orders of magnitude greater than actual pollution with, say, actual radioactive waste that could actually kill actual people.

WFMU's Beware of the Blog: Cussing More Expensive Than Radioactive Waste.

Special bonus -- the post includes an MP3 download link to the Monty Python song "Sit on my face and tell me that you love me," which has no dirty words in it and still garnered a $25K fine from the old (pre-Janet Jackson's booby) FCC.
