Chuck Colson

I hope you will call or write FCC Chairman Kevin Martin and thank him for hiring Penny Nance. You can call us here at BreakPoint (1-877-322-5527) or visit our website and get information on how to do this. Or you can register your support directly.

And to all the shock jocks out there who are pouring sewage into kids’ minds: You’ve got good reason to be afraid—very afraid. A mother named Penny Nance, indignant over what’s on television and radio, is on the job.
