It is typical of our time that such sordid themes and plots draw wide acclaim and fascinate a public that no longer wants wholesome entertainment. If this is what most Americans want today....shows like this one and the Soprano's, then we are not much better than the cheering audience at the Roman Coliseum in the days when gladiators killed Christians for fun.
