Condolences to Tipper Gore

Tipper Gore (wife of former Vice President Gore), Susan Baker, Pam Howar, and Sally Neivus created the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) in 1985. The goal of the PMRC was to censor music and make people aware of the content of music before they bought it. Because of the PMRC's work, record labels are required to label CDs with explicit content, so parents buying albums will be aware of what they are buying for their children. The label has been nicknamed the "Tipper Sticker" after Gore.

Ms. Gore's work in the anti-cursing world has been applauded by Bleep!. I wish to extend my condolences to Gore on her recent divorce after 40 years of marriage.
