>>Does the FCC really have so little work to do that they have time and 
resources to waste pursuing this?... I fail to see how the FCC needs to be 
poking around here.<<

You forget:  This is an election year, and decency on the airwaves is something that everyone is for (at least, everyone who wants to keep their job as some district's elected representative, if you get my drift).  The sight of politicians falling all over each other to harrumph about a naked breast is actually funny...or pathetic, I can't decide which...but pirate broadcasters and AM stations failing to make mode changes don't energize Congress-creatures (and therefore the voters) the way the f-word and a naked breast do.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world is howling with laughter, seeing as how the country with (supposedly) the most individual freedom is in an uproar over a word and a bit of human anatomy.
