Hidden flesh

Rats, there goes the only reason to watch the Grammys:

CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.

Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could  possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure.

Has the network been taken over by Islamist radicals?

A Saudi Arabian cleric is calling for all female babies to wear the burka, an all-encompassing garment that includes a veil that covers the face. In Saudi Arabia, grown women already wear the burka.

Sheikh Abdullah Daoud issued the fatwa apparently with good intentions: in a television interview on Islamic Al-Majd TV about six months ago, Daoud said that he believed wearing the face veil would protect baby girls from sexual molestation in the kingdom.

Yeah, nothing like a baby's face to get the perverts all hot and bothered. Good intentions, indeed.

The CBS memo also banned any"organized message" carried on lapel pins "or other form of accessory." Guess all those patriotic pop artists will have to leave the American flag pins at home.
