    No writing about dicks and orgasms, even indirectly, even if you paraphrase Roger Moore in topic subject lines.

    To the puritannical, prissy Melissa Turner: A nice big steaming mug of STFU.

    "Having a little fun with such a topic is one thing, but such an in-your-face package with an illustration that appeals to children is inappropriate."

    Heh, heh, he said, 'package.' Heh. heh.

    "One cannot always tell during telephone conversations, but it sounded like her voice quivered a time or two, as might be expected when a long-time and valued relationship is ending."

    This is the biggest load of bullshit I've ever read. What PR/ad/marketing flack wrote this and had it forced into this "story" about some melodramatically offended reader?

    Sounds to me like it was a stupid idea for a cover story in the first place, and embarrassingly bad idea for a graphic and a silly, too flip, ombudsman story on the subject.

    Congrats, Jacksonville, you hit the trifecta.
