Howard Sterns Moves to Sirius

I caught the tail end of the Howard Sterns show this morning on the way to work. He must have been on his best behavior on his first day because I didn't hear a single explicative. What I did enjoy was hearing him discuss first amendment rights. It would seem there are some senators who are trying to get the FCC to censor Howard Sterns on Sirius, which is a pay service much like HBO. Also, apparently Sirius can be programmed to block channels, so if you don't want to hear Sterns, you don't have to listen. Basically, Sterns went on to say that if they are successful in altering how the FCC behaves, they'll destroy cable TV and the first amendment as we know it. Keep up the good fight, Howard.
