Enforce ban on explicit lyrics
To the editor:
This is about the bill that would prohibit watching adult-type movies while in your vehicle.
First of all, I am against watching any video programs while driving.
If anyone likes adult movies that much, I wouldn't want them anywhere in my neighborhood. But it is their constitutional right under the First Amendment to do that.
What I have a bigger problem with is the people with booming radios that play music with explicit lyrics younger kids seem to pick up on and sing. That should be the bill they pass and enforce.
It draws attention to them and it is offensive to most that I know.
