On "Desperate Housewives" and "The Daily Show"

Fellowmen, let's all take a step back and CALM DOWN, for goodness' sake.

Much has been said, e-mailed, written, blogged, covered by the media, etc. about Desperate Housewives' and The Daily Show's racial slur against our country.

OF COURSE it wasn't very smart of the shows' respective writers to portray us that way.

OF COURSE Filipinos shouldn't take it sitting down.

OF COURSE an apology is not enough.

But when is enough enough? What more should be done? Stop the shows? Why not just stop WATCHING the shows? Television shows are after viewership, after all.
