Followers of vulgarity may be interested to see that today's
Washington Post includes the word "fuck" printed in full,
with no dashes or asterisks, on page A4. The article concerns
our Vice President's use of the term in the Senate:

 Cheney Dismisses Critic With Obscenity
 Clash With Leahy About Halliburton


 "Fuck yourself," said the man who is a heartbeat from the presidency.


 As it happens, the exchange occurred on the same day the
 Senate passed legislation described as the "Defense of Decency
 Act" by 99 to 1.
