Independent Lens

I’m catching up on some films in the PBS series Independent Lens and have found Beauty is Embarrassing, Neil Berkeley’s look at the life and art of Wayne White a satisfying documentary on several levels except that PBS (or at least UNC-TV) is censoring his art (and some of what he says) because of humorous profanities.  This is what I find embarrassing…and sad…that fear of political controversy has such a chilling effect on programming that, to be honest, airs at the most unfortunate and inhospitable time of 2 a.m. or somesuch anyway.
