Censorship and Advertising

Thank you so much for letting George Will (Column Right, Dec. 2) put into perspective the growing attack on our freedoms of expression.

It isn't enough that we have to curb our free spoken expression, now the self-appointed guardians of sensitivity wish to control our visual stimuli as well. A free society can't survive if it worries too much about every transgression of some individual's personal definition of impropriety.

Isn't it ironic that the same people who demonstrated for their free speech rights and lifestyle guarantees are the strongest advocates of "politically correct" speech in the constitutionally protected speech of others? There is no correct or incorrect. Only wide differences that a "culturally diverse" society should, quite naturally, embrace.
