This troupe was in Boston earlier this year, and they got some very sick coverage by the Boston Herald, (a major family newspaper, which showed a photo of one of the performers from the back side). This stuff is as sick as it gets. It shocks all moral sensibilities and insults human dignity. We have become a society of profane dogs. When local politicians start defending this deranged "entertainment" as 'freedom of speech', you know it's time to start reading about the fall of the Roman Empire - so you'll get another view at what America has entered into.

It's deja vu all over again.

The medical director of the Philadelphia High School for Girls claimed in the Twenties that "the consensus of opinion of leading medical and scientific authorities is that [jazz's] influence is as harmful and degrading as it has been all along among the savages from whom we borrowed it" and warned that if the disease continued to spread it "may tear to pieces the whole social fabric." Leonard, p. 11-2

Oh, wait. I know.  "This time, it's different."

Don't insult dogs. But come to think of it, my dogs have a good idea what to do when someone waves a wiener at them...
