After working out my rough plotline, I did some googling on the history of controversy and music. Unsurprisingly, most of the hits were American sites. Most depressing were the ones I've quoted in my last post - the right wing Christian defenders of 'our children' and their morality. I remembered that there is a very, very serious side to this story - and wondered whether I need to even bother making up a totalitarian state where religiosity is rife and freedom of expression is curtailed, when America is already heading that way at six zillion miles an hour, with the headlights switched off.

I need to watch Rocky Horror again, get myself into a lighter frame of mind, or I'm not going to be able to carry this on.
