Hah! It certainly shows how the meaning of certain words and phrases changes over time, e.g., "Having a gay time .. wish you were here!"
Yes, I wondered about the "innocent friendship" angle in the Sponge Bob episode when he and Patrick adopt a baby clam and become "Daddy" Patrick and "Mommy" Sponge Bob. I begin to think Dr. Wertham was right when he wrote "Seduction of the Innocent" :)
Sorry, I couldn't resist that title...
When Robin was introduced into the Batman comics there was an intimation that there was a homosexual relationship involved. Nowadays, it's SpongeBob and Patrick.

This is a great example of a law that is ramrodded through a legislature without thought for the consequences. My daughter's PC has trouble accessing our own home WiFi network on occasion because of all the noise from the neighbors' unsecured routers! As a Michigan resident, I guess I'd better ensure that she knows enough to hook up to the CORRECT router.
Probably Sparta was not pulling in enough funds from traffic citations so they went after another "source of funds".
