I've written a lot of dirty words on this post. I mean a lot a lot. Heck of a lot more than I originally intended to, anyway. First hundred posts or so, I don't think there's so much as a "hell". Then we dropped a couple of BS's here and there. Finally, there was the David Mamet post. That kind of broke the dam. Now it's like a Chris Rock special in here.
And yet, when it came time to type the word JAP for the first time (in Barbie) I really hesitated. Something about the word just put me off. I've written some absolutely virulent stuff over the years and somehow JAP upsets me? That's like being a daredevil who's afraid of spiders. Seriously, don't I have bigger things to worry about?
In any case, thanks to readers Jake from Ohio and Marissa from Illinois for suggesting Ms. Silverman.
