Dear Editor:

I am writing to appeal to your readers to speak up and write or call the television stations that are running ads with half naked women, and other 'soft porn' tactics. While watching the basketball tournaments on WANE TV this week, a certain radio station has placed an ad with a half-dressed woman prancing around, wiggling into the camera, lifting her shirt (they insert black triangles to cover her private parts), need I go on?

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you where my little Tubby Hubby Wayne and I went to eat recently. You won't believe me but I'll tell you anyway. We had been shopping at St. Vincent de Paul's for my Easter outfit when we noticed it was lunchtime. We decided to stop and grab a bite to eat and then come back and shop.
