This is my letter to the world, That never wrote to me, -- The simple news that Nature told, With tender majesty. Her message is committed To hands I cannot see; For love of her, sweet countrymen, Judge tenderly of me! - emily dickinson -

so the guy was shown shooting hoops and getting all sweaty in the sun. then, when he got home, he washed his face with the stuff that was being promoted. in the next sequence, he was appraising his face in the mirror -- no blemishes, no blackheads, no visible wrinkle lines, whatever. then in the last sequence, we could see his face immerging from a dark background in three different shades of skin tones, the last being all creamy and pearly white! from dark to light. from being lost to being enlightened. from a nobody to a happening somebody. ooh kay.

so, it's not enought to deceive teenage girls (and grown women) into believing that pearly white skin is THE only thing that should matter in life. now, the same nonsense is being beamed into the psyche of boys and men! so, what's next? padded underwear to get that impressive bulge under those button flies? yes, that silly 'enhancement' device has been around for some time but it better not be shown on tv! it's not the size, you ninny, it's how you use it!

has it really come to this? that men have to resort to artificial means just to conjure an image of success and well being? whatever happened to hard work, wisdom and plain sincerity? whatever happened to being true to your self? can't we just be thankful for what we already have? can't we just accept who we are?
