“Can anyone really imagine seeing what those firefighters saw — first one plane, then another — and saying, ‘Goodness gracious, what rare deed is this?’ when ‘What the –’ more accurately captures the moment?” columnist Kathleen Parker asks on today’s Opinion pages. She was responding to the misguided vow by the American Family Association to flood the Federal Communications Commission with complaints if CBS stations air the documentary “9/11,” which contains some cursing (it’s scheduled to air at 7 p.m. Sunday on KWCH, Channel 12 in Wichita). “Surely the American Family Association’s biblical ethics leave some wiggle room for common sense and context,” Parker argued. “Besides, children too young to hear raw language are far too young to watch something as horrifying as the mass murder that took place on Sept. 11.”
