"Police officers assigned to the schools have fined about two dozen students for cursing in a new program to curtail unruly behavior... "We're sending a message to the parents and to the teachers," said Sandy Cruz-Serrano, senior adviser to Superintendent of Schools Robert Henry. "We are trying to bring back order to the schools.""
School administrators and the police put their heads together and this is what they came up with? We are fucked (oops!).
I couldn't help but think of George Carlin's monologue on cussing (apologies ahead of time to anyone who might be offended): Filthy Words
"... And, uh, bastard you can say, and hell and damn so I have to figure out which ones you couldn't and ever and it came down to seven but the list is open to amendment, and in fact, has been changed, uh, by now, ha, a lot of people pointed things out to me, and I noticed some myself. The original seven words were, shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits. Those are the ones that will curve your spine, grow hair on your hands and (laughter) maybe, even bring us, God help us, peace without honor (laughter) um, and a bourbon..."
If the words that people say were the only things wrong in this world, it'd be a great world.
