    Run it. Anyone who gets offended is out of touch with the dynamics of the online world.

    So profanity might bother them, but gunfire and children screaming is just hard-hitting journalism. Got it.

    Totally backwards. I was listening to a radio show today and the host mentioned the newspaper. And the guest mocked newspapers and said nobody but nobody reads a newspaper. And mocked the idea of a delivery. So I repeat. This is 2019 and newspapers are dead. Put whatever cuss words you want in them. Nobody under 45 is reading a fricking newspaper unless it's one of the misguided college aged kids who actually are majoring in journalism cause their dad or uncle passed it down into their bloodlines and it's (unfortunately for them) in their blood.

    I live in Nashville, where the state capitol is a rats nest of misogyny and racism (and busts of Confederate generals). Here's some of the rest of the transcripts from the Tennessean, via the Nashville Scene:

    The paper reports that in one text exchange from August 2016, Cothren said, “Just so y’all know, I did fuck [a woman] in the bathroom at party fowl [a local sports bar]. Will send pictures later.” To which Casada responded: “Only gone for 60 seconds,” and, “R u a minute man????;)” Cothren replied: “Yes, I take after you. Like father like son.” Casada responded again: “Lolol! If I’m happy, then all is good!!!!!” In another exchange, Casada commented on a photograph of a woman Cothren had sent to him: "Can I just touch????"

    Yee-ha.
