2. Fortunately my daughters are not interested in

Beyonce. I got to say I would not want my daughters to dress in that fashion (I saw the last seconds of the show after I turned my television back on).

I am glad that the Superbowl did select an act with a little more relevance to today (enough with The Who and Paul McCartney and Madonna). I just don't feel comfortable myself with such acts as Beyonce (felt that way about Madonna as well in the day).

I usually don't watch the halftime show, but I did watch The Who a few years ago (I kind of regret it since I had been avoiding watching them especially since Entwhistle died). It is like watching a shadow, a distant memory of the past. At least, for whatever her merit, Beyonce is in her prime.

Of course I am also glad my kids don't listen to the bands from my day (The Who in particular because of the objectionable content of some of their lyrics).

4. another sane voice in the wilderness.... my husband and I were turned off with all the gyrations,

flying hair, skimpy outfits, tall boots, etc. maybe we are just getting old?

3. I loved the halftime show, too.

I admit, though, it was annoying as Hell when the audience near the stage had their hands raised up and they were all in the way. At one camera angle, they nearly blocked my view of her on TV.

9. Yeah! And get off my Lawn!!!

Danged kids and their long hair and their race mixing and that dadgum newfangled rock and/or roll music! When I was a young pup, music was Doodles Weaver singing about flying trapezes, not "single ladies" in skimpy outfits.

It's shameful, I'm telling ya! Pure dadgum shameful!

10. Not so much outrageous as ho-hum.

Very showbiz-y and polished. Yawn.

8. The great cutural divide. I remember when Elvis gyrations were considered immoral

and the Platters were considered a bad influence on our children.
