Saturday, the Red Sox played the Kansas City Royals. Red Sox star David Ortiz, known as Big Papi, offered a memorable salute to Boston: he took the microphone for a pregame speech and said to the fans, “This is our [expletive] city.”
Normally, the FCC’s job is to protect the nation from language like that. But FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski tweeted, “David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today’s Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston.”

That’s John Howard, Australia’s Prime Minister at the time of the Port Arthur Massacre in 1996. After the massacre, he prompted the passing of gun control laws throughout Australia. Gun buy-back programs resulted in the destruction of 600,000 guns, private sales were prohibited, guns were required to be individually registered to their owners and assault weapons were banned or heavily restricted. The result? Gun homicides reduced 59%, gun suicides dropped 65% and there have been no mass shootings since (4 or more deaths at one time).
It’s also worth pointing out that John Howard was the leader of the more conservative of the two major parties in Australia.
