RARA-AVIS: Language

From: Jeanheller@aol.com

There was an interesting thread here recently on the blunting of the impact of words that once were considered shocking, even taboo. Anna Quindlen has a very good column on that very subject in this week's Newsweek. I recommend it. If you aren't a subscriber or a news stand denizen, I'm sure you can find it on the Net.
