Garrison Keillor on Indecency

Just a few days ago a friend gave me a copy of Garrison Keillor's Homegrown Democrat. He has something to say (p. xxiii) about twits who have a problem with body part words.

The word indecent can be interpreted in so many ways that a radio station in Lexington, Kentucky, decided to cancel a radio show of mine because I used the word breast. Here in the land of the free, freedom won by brave men whose speech was salty and whose interest in women was keen, a man cannot say breast on the radio. How do these people manage to order fried chicken in a restaurant?
