We, the undersigned below, are uniting our voices to demand decency in media messages that we are involuntarily exposed to. A mother listened in horror as her five year old daughter practiced her newly emerging reading skills on a bus stop advertisement for Anthony Hopkins\' movie "Fracture." Her mother heard her attempts at the message: "I shot my wife." The mother, trapped by a red light, could not escape the advertisement\'s message. Voluntarily exposing children to messages in the media is the parent\'s choice; sitting at a red light listening to your five year old state: "I shot my wife" was not the parent\'s choice. She could not escape the message. Banning dangerous second hand exposure to cigarettes occurred years ago on airplanes; this issue of involuntary exposure of indecent and dangerous media messages should follow suit. We sign our names with the intent that laws will be written and enacted to protect involuntary exposure to indecent media messages. There is nothing decent about a five year old practing her reading on a bus sign with the message: I shot my wife. Thank your for your action.


The Campaign for Decent Media Exposure is a group of people concerned about offensive media messages that are involuntarily brought into our environment. For more information please go to
