Censorship reaches a new low.

This seems sane.

In Tennessee, the state Senate has passed legislation that would prohibit playing an "obscene" film on a screen visible to other drivers. The bill is now before the state House.

Now we're starting to prohibit material that can be possibly seen from 50+ feet away at high rates of speed. I know, let's stop putting windows on adult video stores, someone could walk by! Or wait, let's stop showing movies on airplanes, "the children" could have a telescope and catch a glimpse of violence from a passing 747! Or they might see into the bathroom! Shocking! Let's ground the commercial fleet!
