As long as the government is cracking down on indecency on television, one Congressman wants to clean up commercials. Virginia Democrat Jim Moran says he's tired of watching ads about erectile dysfunction. Several drugs are competing to treat it. Constant ads promote the drugs' benefits and also warn that if the experience lasts more than four hours you should see a doctor. Moran's legislation would restrict the ads to after 10 p.m.
