Picked up this little news bit this morning over coffee on CBS morning news. Found the link to the story here on their web page HERE.
First off, applause are due for South Pasadena resident McKay Hatch and his parents for teaching him activisim is a good thing. Young Hatch as he made the jump from elementary school to middle school was not happy with his friends cussing. He formed a “no cussing club”. Not a bad idea, peer pressure to clean up the language. Purely a voluntary thing. The club has taken off with clubs in 32 cities in 11 countries.
Gotta love South Pasadena City Council. They heaped praise on his efforts, and rightly so. They even are looking at a “no swearing ordinance” for the city. Rewind…what, limit speech? C’mon I don’t agree with the constant swearing, but regulating speech by law? Isn’t that contrary to freedom of speech?
What you say LA, is limiting speech as a matter of law ok?
