Cultural Decay

I think this story is actually fairly important. Not because two nit-wits had sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral as part of a publicity stunt for the "Opie and Anthony" radio show. It's important because of what it says about corporate governance. Opie and Anthony will not be fired. The head of the radio network will not be fired. No member of the Board of Directors will resign in protest. The companies that advertise on the show will not pull their advertising. The ad agencies that place the advertising will not recommend against buying spots on "Opie and Anthony."

There will be no consequences except that the nitwits will pay a fine and go home.
