    USA network postponed the season finale of (IMHO) the fantastic show Mr. Robot because there is a scene that is reminiscent of the news crew shooting in Virginia. This was a classy move, I think. They didn't go overboard and delete the scene or shelf the episode but did take the feelings of everyone touched by this tragedy seriously and delayed the airing (not that anybody who lost a loved one that day, would be watching tv that night but still). Nice compromise between being insensitive and being part of the offended by everything crew. Can't help but wonder what some people would have said had this episode aired BEFORE the shooting. A lot of people would have probably blamed USA for giving this nut the idea to do the shooting in the first place.

    Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto

    That popped into my head the first time I heard there was a TV series called Mr. Robot.
