Tidbits for Political Junkies with Short Attention Spans & Hearty Appetites

Get some f***ing perspective, please...

Doonesbury's BD, upon discovering that he's lost a leg, yells "son of a bitch!" -- arguably a rather mild outburst under the circumstances -- and yet some newspapers feel they have to pull the strip, to protect their readers from "inappropriate language." Somehow, I'm having trouble imaging a more appropriate time to use such language. I think I've said worse things after stubbing my toe, and I'm polite.

Kudos to the Atlanta Journal, however, which at least wasn't too coy to spell out for it's readers just what the flap was about.
