    I know it's just a little town, but this sounds like something that could gain national momentum if not stamped out quickly. Any thoughts? Would something like this stand up to legal scrutiny?

    Is there a silent "n" in front of fuckwads? Is it nfuckwads and I've been spelling it wrong all this time? Damn.

    If this passes, that would mean that Dick Gregory and Randall Kennedy couldn't talk about their books.

    Before he did schlock for the diets and other stuff, Dick Gregory wrote a book with the n-word as the title and dedicated to his mother, saying that whenever anyone used the word, they were promoting his book.

    And Chris Rock couldn't do his routine there.

    I don't use the word and listened to enough white people use it growning up, but the way to diminish any curse word might be to use it a lot.
