The fine folks at the Smoking Gun provide me with many a giggle. Occasionally, a full guffaw. Currently, they are featuring letters from television viewers who were outraged when Robert Novak used a profanity (bullshit) on CNN. This is my favorite.

Another writer indicates that her children were watching and heard the 'B' word on the show and now she can't get them to stop saying the 'B' word. Maybe it's just me, but to me the 'B' word is 'bitch.'

    I swear like a truck driver around my kid. I really don't care. He knows what the words mean and when it's inappropriate to use them and I know he's not running around screaming naughties all over the place. Also, I'm low-brow.

    Anyway, one day we were having a conversation and I mentioned that I never say the words I consider really bad. He was incredulous. "There are worse words than Mommy says?" It's sad that there are so many people out there who think "bullshit" is a profanity but they don't bat an eye at racial slurs and other really hurtful stuff.

    I love the smoking gun's collection of complaint letters about how nasty the NY State toll attendants are...
