Radiowaves flooded with PSAs

  The radio airwaves are SATURATED--I would say some days NINETY PERCENT of the ads--with government ads, PSAs and the like admonishing us out here in RadioLand to do all kinds of things.
  Here's the text of one of the worst ones. It's badly "rapped" in a breathy, Mom voice:
Don't do drugs you'll end up like a thug and you'll make your mother sad and you'll make your father mad. Don't do drugs, drugs are bad. Don't do drugs, drugs are bad.

  Heart attacks caused by smog will be next. I mean, we've hit up the little kids pretty hard with the EPA ads. Now let's hit up the elderly.
  Really, we're all becoming terribly cynical these days.
