Don't alienate the crucial 12-18 year old demographic

When I got to my sister's last weekend, I spied in the magazine bin a copy of the "Entertainment Weekly" with Michael Moore on the cover. But what caught my eye was how someone had taken a red magic marker and drawn a huge "NO" circle across his know, the circle with the line through it, popular on "Ghostbusters" artwork and poison control labels. I was a little thrown, and asked my sister about it. I mean, I know she and her husband are pretty consistently conservative, but I didn't think they were vandals. Turns out, my teenage nieces did it! Each week they wait with bated breath to see who will grace the cover of EW (as it's often Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp, or similar) and when, after all that pent up time spent waiting to ogle a hearthrob they got MM, they lashed out. I don't want to think about what they'd do if I laid hands on any of Shelby's Led Zeppelin CDs...the horror!
