Heating Up: The National Federation of the Blind on Thursday stepped up its campaign against ABC's "Good and Evil" by announcing a boycott of selected Unilever United States Inc. products. "Unilever is the only corporation to purchase advertising time on all three episodes of 'Good and Evil,' " said Marc Maurer, president of the 50,000-member blind consumer group. The boycott is against Lipton tea and soup products, Mrs. Butterworth syrup and Wisk detergent. The group is protesting the show's recurring blind character who displays "ineptitude and stupidity," which, according to ABC, is intended to be funny.
