More on Jerry Springer

Great review. I can't speak to the performance, but this is totally insightful about the show. The thing is, the protestors think the show (and probably, by extension, Jerry Springer, though only secondarily) is the problem, but I would argue (not particularly originally, but certainly passionately) that the protestors are the problem. I do find it interesting that they started protesting in London only after the show had been running for years, and I wonder whether the instigators were American. One of the most refreshing things about living in England was the complete absence of evangelical Christianity from the public discourse. I hope that's not changing.
