PBA Ban Unconstitutional — No Surprise Here

Filed under: Court Decisions — Patterico @ 7:10 pm

The District Court decision finding the partial-birth abortion ban unconstitutional is not much of a surprise. I predicted here that the Supreme Court will eventually find the PBA Ban unconsitutional, for many of the same reasons cited by the District Court today.

The Ever-So Anti-Commercial PBS

Filed under: Humor — Patterico @ 10:49 am

This post is inspired by a Radley Balko post, which says PBS has launched an anti-corporate web site called “Don’t Buy It.” The site says it is

a media literacy Web site for young people that encourages users to think critically about media and become smart consumers.

Uh-huh.

And in other, unrelated news:

My four-year old daughter watches almost no commercial television, but does watch PBS. (I think I just contradicted myself.) The other day she said she wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese’s. Since we haven’t been there before, I asked her where she had heard about it. She said, in that sing-song voice kids use when they are repeating something they have heard a hundred times: “Chuck E. Cheese, proud sponsor of Sesame Street.”
