Since Dubya signed the new indecency laws into effect, stemming from the havoc caused by a single breast during the halftime show at the Super Bowl in 2004, (anyone remember who was playing?) fines for language have also risen to a comically large $320,000 per offense. In the midst of this, Ken Burns, America's most well-recognized documentarian, may face millions of dollars worth of fines for his documentary, The War.

The War shows the impact of WWII on the lives of people in four towns, and each town contains veterans who speak candidly about being in the war. The problem is that candid speech sometimes includes curse words, especially when that speech regards the atrocities of war. This could cost Burns a ton of money when The War airs, and perhaps make it so that the series wouldn't air at all.
