Here’s a Head Scratcher –

Apparently, Time Warner Cable is going to heroically stop carrying advertisements for semi-automatic weapons, or ads that feature guns pointed at people. Civilization Triumphs! Violence in World Ends! 

Except that no mention is made of when they are going to stop carrying shows where guns are pointed at people. 

Not exactly a surprise, they wouldn’t have much to show other than HGTV. 

Still, one wonders what happens when the next big ultra-violent action flick comes out and the ads feature lots of guys firing automatic weapons at, well, everything. I don’t think that you have to be Carnak The All-Seeing to predict, that somehow, someway, those ads will make it through to your living room.
