I was going to refrain from discussing ‘nipplegate’ until thekitty pointed me to this depressing article: Tenn. Woman Files Suit over Super Bowl. Two quotes:

“As a direct and proximate result of the broadcast of the acts, (Carlin) and millions of others saw the acts and were caused to suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury,” the lawsuit says.


Carlin’s lawsuit seeks billions of dollars in compensatory and punitive damages.

Outrage, anger and embarrassment – are they litigation material? If they were I would say that half of the population of the states would start a class action lawsuit against the supreme court for allowing Bush to expose his nipplegate. And injury? Did this woman get whiplash from the shock of seeing a sinful breast exposed? The shame of it all!
The second quote though, that’s the one that makes me very sad. Billions of dollars in compensatory and punative damages – not only does this expose that absolute lack of relevance that the judiciary process holds in the U.S. right now but also the blind, opportunistic greed that it’s faithful alcolytes worship. Overhaul is needed, before it’s too late.

  1. You said it chef, mind you, you just had to throw in a shot at Bush didn’t you? But at any rate, this whole Super Bowl mess shows how messed we are. How many kids in Africa have died of AIDS since this nipple was so shockingly revealed to us? It is sad. No other word for it, regardless if you were offended or not, it is not this big of deal. Greed or stupidity or moral outrage aside, this tying up more media and justice system’s time just really makes me sad and a bit angry. This whole thing just shows to me the priorities of humanity.
