CLEAN ROCK

Congratulations on your victory, Parents Music Resource Center (“Parents Warn: Take the Sex & Shock Out of Rock,” by Patrick Goldstein, Aug. 25).

Now all that’s left for you to do is edit Ernest Hemingway, ban Kurt Vonnegut Jr., install child-proof locks on “Grimm’s Fairy Tales,” abolish soap operas, “Miami Vice,” football games and double beds; burn the sonnets by Shakespeare about his mistress; outlaw sex education, co-ed physical education, “Love Boat” reruns, social studies and evolution; make science fiction, biology classes, strapless prom dresses and the 6 o’clock news punishable by death; cut out the passages in your Bible that promote bigamy and incest and delete the many hundreds of phrases in there that (and I quote from the PMRC list of no-nos) “describe or imply physical or emotional violence” or “make reference to sex or the sex act.”

And don’t forget to do away with the First Amendment.

P.S. Are you guys Communists, because you seem to be following their example?
