My sister and I were sitting a few tables away from you. We did laugh at the 
crude jokes, but also realized that they were not meant for young people. Good 
for you for speaking up. It seemed pretty obvious that she was asked to tone 
it down, which she didn't do.

Well, I don't know.  When I heard some of the jokes at the banquet, I
thought "Here we go again."  The same complaints were heard following
some of the previous Conventions, and I know that in at least one case
the MC was hurt by the criticisim.

Yes, there are children in the audience.  However, it is primarily an
adult function.  And the young folks in the audience hear a lot worse
every day at school, from their peers!

So, were  a few of the jokes a little "blue" for an audience with
children?  Maybe so, but not enough IMO for folks to get their
knickers in a twist about it.

Just my two cents.
