I had an incredibly busy week working the media in preparation for the July 2 signature deadline, and then baking pizzas and drinking beer in celebration of its passing. So I didn’t have time to crack open The Seattle Weekly until its last day on the street.
Knute Berger said the word “fuck.”
I double-checked… I hadn’t accidentally picked up a copy of The Stranger. It really was Knute in the Weekly… although he was just borrowing vocabulary from our foul-mouthed VP, Dick Cheney.
Since starting my blog I’ve received a handful of emails from readers who don’t appreciate my occasional, um… colorful language. And recently this site was rejected by Google AdSense for “excessive profanity.”
Personally, I feel that I use just the right of amount of profanity. Besides, if Dick Cheney can say the word “fuck,” and Knute Berger can say the word “fuck,” I don’t see why I can’t say the word “fuck.”
After all, it’s just a fucking word.
Anyway, nice column on Fahrenheit 9/11, Knute. [“Burn, Baby, Burn.”]
And great use of the word “fuck.”
