But I was a little puzzled by this passage:

The mothers of the classmates of my eighth-grade daughter and my 18-year-old son gather at school functions, where we talk obsessively about how much we worry and strategize and push back against the tsunami of pop culture sleaze that seeps into our kids' psyches. Who among us, as poor John Kerry would say, is not sick and tired of hearing the Cialis ad discuss four-hour erections while we're sitting there trying to watch TV with the kids?

Are they even showing Cialis ads on PBS nowadays?

If you're really worried about pop culture sleaze, instead of watching TV in the evening with your kids, shouldn't you be explaining New Yorker cartoons to them?
