    No Charges for Cursing

    PHILADELPHIA, PA. — Firing off a few four-letter words can't be charged as a crime anymore in Pennsylvania - at least when state police are involved.

    I don't get it. It's OK to curse someone out? What about the rights of the person being cursed? Also, it doesnt seem conducive to good order and peace for a person to be able to curse a police officer with immunity.

    The out and out cursing in public really irrates me. Especially if I have my children with me. This is still enforcable for now.

    Too bad this didn't apply so we could cuss out some of the morons we deal with
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
