Nightline: Asking the Questions You're Afraid to Answer

TONIGHT'S FOCUS: Decency on TV.

There is a larger issue here, and it's not the speculation that Timberlake and Jackson were once involved with each other. What is appropriate to show on TV? And when?

Cable has always had different standards, but these days, with the majority of homes having cable, that seems to be a difference without much distinction. A child with a remote can't tell the difference between cable and the commercial networks.

It's true, little Timmy's a bit slow. He has trouble distinguishing between clauses that take "that" and those that take "which," Democrats and Republicans, and he often confuses William Gaddis with William Gass. (Where's 'No Child Left Behind' when you really need it?) But there's no reason to worry that he's being exposed to unnecessary sexual content on television. Timmy gets his porn off the internet like everyone else.

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
