(AA) In the wake of the recent string of solar flares, some Americans--particularly Gulf Coast residents--may be wondering whether there are places in the U.S. that are safe from such natural disasters. The short answer? No. The Midwest may not be vulnerable to hurricanes, but twisters drop in regularly. Major earthquakes don't tend to strike New England, but strong winds can peel the roof off a northeastern house and snowstorms can shut down cities.
"Every location in the country is exposed to one disaster or another," says Wendy Rose, spokeswoman for the Institute for Business & Home Safety, a Tampa, Fla.-based nonprofit insurance industry group that aims to reduce losses from natural catastrophes.
Still, some places are less susceptible than others to natural hazards. To get an idea where they might be, we partnered with Sperling's Best Places ( www.bestplaces.net), a data collection company based in Portland, Ore. Sperling's has compiled weather and disaster data for 331 metropolitan statistical areas in the U.S., and we used the information to discern the safest--and least safe--areas in which to live.
On May 1, 2007, some thousands of New Jersey children were sadistically violated by Comcast’s screening of pornography on the Disney Playhouse cable channel.
How many thousands of innocent 3 to 6-year-old children were traumatized by the close-up groans and grinds of pornography in place of “Handy Manny”?
The number is a well-guarded Disney and Comcast secret.
I received one cynical e-mail saying, “It was a sanctioned technology experiment as the parental controls were overridden. That’s why there’s no government action.” Who will be prosecuted for deliberately and/or recklessly brutalizing these wide-eyed youngsters?
Statistically speaking, some percentage of these small victims will eventually act out on themselves, on their siblings, neighbors, friends, or families and blame themselves!
The Children’s On Line Protection Act, or COPA, would have Internet sites require age identification cards for their content – just like store owners require to sell beer or cigarettes. Disney, an E! Playboy distributor until late 2006, has aggressively opposed COPA’s efforts to penalize sites that give minors access to harmful material.
Under the circumstances, I understand why my correspondent suspects that the May 1 “accident” was actually a test run by Comcast, Disney – or both – to induce small children into pornography addiction.
This is not the first time Disney has been accused of subliminally flashing porn or phallic symbols in their movies. If you have not seen this clip before, I warn you it's very disturbing. Why would Disney include this in one of their most popular films? What else are we NOT catching that the innocent mind of our youth gobble right up?? Makes you wonder...
