Baby It’s Cold Outside: Going Too Far With Censorship

As Christmas gradually sneaks up on us and radio stations become inundated with Christmas tunes, you may have noticed there is one particular song missing from the Christmas classics: “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Unless you’ve been living under a rock (which, at this point, might be preferable the way society is unfolding), you probably have heard that many radio stations ...
