The Censors Strike Back There was supposed to be a scene on "ER" last night where they showed the breast of an 80-year-old woman who was being operated on. NBC, in light of the Janet Jackson halftime extravaganza, pulled the scene. The producers and others involved with "ER" got miffed because it wasn't in a trashy whore kind of context. NBC did the right thing. No one out there in TV land wants to see an 80-year-old breast. They did us all a favor. I was able to watch the show without worrying about turning my head and possibly ralphing all over the floor. TV showed us the boob we wanted to see. It's a simple case of supply and demand.
