Powell Sis Was Foul Miss

After the Super Bowl mess, Federal Communications Commission chairman Michael Powell promised an investigation that will be "thorough and swift."

But the incident-happening just as Congress is speeding an indecency bill into law-reminds us that Powell’s actress sister, Linda Powell, appeared on HBO’s Sex and the City in 2000 and screamed out the f-word, not as an adjective but to refer to the sex act.

It’s a good thing courts have ruled that regulating cable language and content is largely off-limits-or else the chairman might have had to fine his sister.
