    OMG. The government intruding into our bedrooms. Not a good thought, but very realistic. This is a sad state of affairs in our country. I like when things that need discussing and changing are put into a comedy or cartoon format, because that is when REAL changes can take place. When the perpetrators can laugh at their own selves and their own thoughts.
