NASCAR vs. The Simpsons

This morning I was listening to CBC Radio 1 and one of the main stories today is that the local cable company cut off the final few laps of the Nascar race for an all new episode of The Simpsons. Let’s face it The Simpsons is one of the most important influinces of my generation.

The Simpsons, teaches that it is important to think for yourself and that one voice can make a difference. In retrospect this week’s particular episode was one of the best lately and I feel bad if an cable company didn’t cut off NASCAR for it.

    Most amusing is that Rogers was "unaware" of the complaints. Given it sounds like NASCAR got pre-empted, I would be inclined to believe them, because otherwise they'd be interfering with the feed of the respective networks (and not even Rogers would be stupid enough to try that, would they?). In any case, I would certainly hope they care to explain what they find from their investigation at some point.
