My essay is going okay. I'm gathering a lot of sources and trying to figure out where I want to go from there. My thesis is: Children today are more exposed to innapropriate material than children in the 1930's. The research is going really well. I'm finding all I want and then some. One challenge is trying to compare the outcome of today's kids to the 1930's kids. I can't seem to find anything about how the censorship affected the kids of 1930, but I can find out quite a bit on today's. Right now, I have a brief history about the Hays Code to set up a little background and also I have how the radio affects children today (still questioning if I want to include this, or stick strictly with television and movies. Also considering school censorship). I guess my biggest difficulty is trying to decide what I want to include and want to "toss out."
