Sex and violence. (Off the Record).

Block that metaphor! Maybe the recent Victoria's Secret fashion show on CBS was a distraction to copy editors everywhere, but it certainly seemed to confuse Michael J. Copps, a member of the Federal Trade Commission and the Associated Press reporter who wrote the story. O

Obviously, Copps thinks that sex equals violence and that Victoria's s Secret is not a real secret, but after the show and during the furor, he brought out all his sports knowledge, and was quoted as saying, "It's time for us to step up to the plate and tackle the wanton violence our kids are served up every day."

Now, if he could keep his shoulder to the wheel, his nose to the grindstone and his ear to the ground, all would go swiftly and easily.
