Below is a forward of a message about another commercial. I will work on
getting contact information out.

I am not a Wrestling fan, but Sunday night I found myself watching wrestling
with friends on Pay Per View. It was the World Wrestling Federation Summer
Slam. Late in the show a promo for their web site was shown. It showed a blind
man walking with a cane right out in front of a bus and being hit and the
over says approximently "WWF dot com over 20 million hits a week."
Thought you might want to know or let others know. To me it was highly
offensive. This was the same wrestling match were Governor Jessie Ventura of
Minnesota was a referee so it was pretty widely viewed. They likely show the
promo on their on other cable channels during their programs.

This mailing list is sponsored by the National Federation of the Blind, NFB.
