Should the Super Bowl Halftime Show Come with a Warning for Parents?

I am not saying I didn't like the Halftime Show at the Super Bowl, but I will say that I felt a little uncomfortable as I sat and watched it next to my 11-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son...

I am still on the fence about whether or not the performance was just "artsy," or if it crossed into, and possibly over, that PG-13 level.

Over at, columnist Gil Smart wonders whether Jennifer Lopez and Shakira's Super Bowl halftime performance should have come with a parental warning. Admitting that he's "an old coot," Smart uses the singers' sexy wardrobes (although neither took their shirt off, like Adam Levine did last year) and J-Lo's use of a stripper pole to argue, "If the Super Bowl is going to be touted as family entertainment, perhaps the NFL has an obligation to warn people with children that what they're about to see may be upsetting to some viewers...Maybe the assumption is viewers could have guessed what was coming on the basis of who the performers were. But I think the NFL owes viewers with kids more than that."
