I just wrote a long rant on how the leftist PC (Political Correctness*) movement was dissolving our constitutional liberties**, and creating a generation of over-sheltered emotional invalids. I read over it, decided it was wide-open to misinterpretation, and shelved it.
That's right, I caved into the preschool-nation mentality that if you cant say anything nice...
Now I'm officially part of the problem; hooray for me. I'll just go whole-hog on the other side for the sake of propriety:
If anyone wants to join me in congratulating the mayor of Brazoria, Texas for trying to pass an ordinance to fine anyone $500.00 who uses 'the n-word' in an "offensive" manner (LINK), please chime in. I'm sure that this won't threaten the fabric of our constitution, as restriction of speech could never become a slippery slope, and it will surely lead to a more open and enlightened society. It's totally not unconstitutional if someones feelings are at stake, dammit. I'm sure that this type of legislation is for the best, and will create an atmosphere where nobody will ever have their feelings hurt ever again, and that's super. I'm sure that nothing but good can come of it.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need a shower.

**In fairness, I also touched on how the right-wing fearmongers (and/or bible-bangers) were doing the same.
