Dr. Laura Hates You

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, a nationally syndicated talk-show host/moralist/entertainer, went into a skate/surf shop in Costa Mesa, California earlier this week and picked up a copy of Big Brother skateboard magazine as she waited for her son to pick out some gear. She was at once dismayed at either the content, the publisher’s name, or both. Feeling the magazine was “pornographic in nature,” she went on her show Tuesday and spent an extensive amount of time railing the skate shop, the magazine, and skateboarding. Thursday morning, Howard Stern, having heard about Laura’s show, went on an equally amusing tirade, roughly stating that he and Larry Flynt, the publisher of Big Brother, were going to “get that bitch!” It will be interesting to see where this one ends up … and somehow skateboarding gets caught in the middle once again!
