Let me be clear, I am not a fan of Lewis Black (Aug. 26). However, I enjoy quality comedy and satire as much as the next guy. Nowadays, it seems, to get a laugh you must "drop an uncountable number of f-bombs." Apparently, without them, one cannot be funny.

Sad that the great comedians of the past — Red Skelton, Jonathan Winters, Jack Benny — weren't aware of this.
