    I think you proved mine. You inferred meaning where there was none. Is every mention of the word “Otay” a buckwheat reference? Is every mention of “lynch” racially charged? I don’t think so, but if you do then you might wanna tell the dictionary folks. That’d be a start

    So, I inferred meaning where there was none? Why don't you use these words in your copy and see if there's no meaning? Still aren't going to walk that line are you? Inferred meaning my ass.

    I think if you ask 100 sports writers and editors if lynch is a word that is allowed in copy, either 99 or 100 would say absolutely it is forbidden.
