I think some people go out of their way to be offended so they have 
something to complain about.  I find attitudes that nothing can be 
offensive or controversial to be offensive to me.

If you are offended by a program, don't watch or listen.  If enough 
people do the same, the show will have no audience, and will die of 
it's own accord.
