God Bless A&E TV: they bleeped out the B word from Criminal Minds!

Folks, tonight we have something to celebrate! I am ecstatic! I got home around 7:45ish, flipped on the tube as I nuked a frozen thing to eat and started to watch a rerun of Criminal Minds on A&E. Now, get ready to toss your hats in the air Mary Tyler Moore fashion: A&E bleeped out the B word!!!!!!!!!! Not once but twice! At first I though my ears had deceived me: "son of a eeeP," ,but then again it came: a bleep as a thug was ranting B word against a woman..."that eep deserved it." I felt something amazing wash over me: respect. A network on television has made the decision to cancel out the B word from society and send a message to humans everywhere: women deserve the same respect that we afford to other humans.
What can I say: I teared up! I left my frozen mac and cheese in the microwave and went up stairs to kiss my sleeping toddler. She doesn't know she was loved by a network TV this evening but I know, and I told her that perhaps if her mommy and daddy (and all other mommies and daddies) keep fighting the fight, perhaps she will grow up a world that does more than pretend to respect women.
Now folks, I am going to ask you all a favor. Please! Please, Please! write/ Call A&E and thank them. Then forward this post to everyone you know so they can write A&E TV and thank them!
This great and honorable deed must be acknowledged!
