Actually, the ability to edit for children and "broadcast" standards
actually ensures the artists freedom to be "Nasty as they want to be". 
I don't have to buy 2 live crew, but a www.editDaCrew.com which would
download EDL's to bleep the album would expand their market.

As with all parenting questions, there are no right answers, only lots
of less wrong ones.  Not making any claim to virtue or vice here -- I
just know that children are parrots and far more is caught than taught
-- thus I favor being able to target what I think is appropriate for my
kids until they mature enough to make those choices (which I hopefully
will recognize accurately, and prior to the point where their is little
I can do about it anyway).
