Lucy the Slut has been banned
in conservative Colorado Springs, where a billboard company has refused
to run a promotional poster featuring her and her fulsome, furry, pink,
puppet bosom. Lucy is a character in the musical Avenue Q,
coming soon to the town that's home to Focus on the Family and other
evangelical wingnut operations, but apparently no breasts. The kicker:
Lucy will be replaced by Rod. He's a blue, Republican, closeted gay puppet. 

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
