Call me strange, but there's something to be said for self-expression that involves tact and respect. We can express ourselves by raising hope instead of our middle fingers. People need not resort to jumping on the "F*cktard" bandwagon to make a point, provide information or convey a sense of humor.
I know I'm being grumpy, but there are just certain things that grind my nerves down to the root. I have to wonder about a society that has no problem with people screaming the F-word in front of young children. Or with teenagers sitting on a subway while 80-somethings and pregnant women stand. Or with people calling others 'morons' -- both online and off -- just because they don't share the same opinion.
A little boy is turning five this June and wants a big, fun birthday party. So his mother sends out Evites to his entire preschool class plus a few friends. Guess how many folks had opened the Evite after a week? I am talking opened, not replied. Shockingly, only three even bothered to look and only one of those bothered to reply.
