P.S. When I first sent this message, I got a line saying the "word" might
"get my keyboard washed out with soap." Where does this come from?!?
And had the Senate tied on the Defense of Decency Act, our Veep/Senate Prez
most certainly would have voted for it!
FWIW, _The Nation_ has been printing "fuck" in full for some time
now. Know of any others?
