There’s no shortage of songs that could be banned from radio

I think that with radio stations banning Baby It’s Cold Outside, other songs should be banned for being insensitive. For instance:

Atheists – Jesus is Alright by the Doobie Brothers.

Alcoholics – One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer by George Thorogood.

Drug addicts – Everybody Must Get Stoned by Bob Dylan.

Gamblers – Rambling, Gambling Man by Bob Seger.

Arachnophobes – Boris the Spider by The Who.

Arsonists – Burn by Deep Purple.

Werewolves – Bad Moon Rising by Creedance Clearwater Revival.

Pet stores – Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

This is but a small sample of songs that should be banned. And if anyone actually takes this seriously, try smiling instead.

Greg Neiman’s recent letter was very funny.

What percentage of people are walking or cycling to shopping centres or work today?

Do you expect semi drivers, contractors and oilfield workers to ski?

Perhaps you are unaware that the most popular vehicles today are SUVs and gas-guzzling pickups?

What planet are you from?

I, personally, know of no one who finds these wonderful hybrids to be suitable or affordable transportation.

But keep up the good work. We can all use a good chuckle.
