CBS Radio Suspends FREE FM Hosts After Prank

JV and Elvis were (are?) on the radio at 92.3 Free FM, where Howard Stern used to be. As a big radio listener I have to say I did not like this show, they sound like two dumb jocks, guys that think they are funny but aren't. I am glad to see some of the filth being cleaned up on the radio, although there has got to be some room for satire. I am a big fan of Ron and Fez, who although their Free FM show doesn't seem to have any of the old characters they had when they were on WNEW, are still very funny.

I was listening to NPR this morning before going into work and they had a piece on forced abortions in China. I guess it was interesting to hear this on NPR because it certainly is not news:

Cases of Forced Abortions Surface in China

Then after getting home from work I read this article in the National Catholic Register:

"Where Have All the Girls Gone?"

This article mentions the practice of aborting girls in cultures, such as China, where boys are more socially prized for various reasons.
