Subways Running? Check

2:20 PM -- Having solved all the other problems facing New York City, Councilwoman Mary Poppins is once again minding our manners for us. So reports Times Online:

    New York City Council, which declared a moratorium on the word “nigger” in March, is now debating a similar symbolic ban on the word “bitch”. “Some young ladies have no self-esteem. If you call some of them that, that means a lifetime of hurt – the same way as if you say the ‘N-word’ to someone,” said Darlene Mealy, the Brooklyn councilwoman behind the proposal...
Word up, Ms Mealy. I've never recovered from once being called a poopy-head.

    Ms Mealy insists that the “N-word” ban is already having an effect. “I am around a lot of children. They are about to say the N-word. Then they say, ‘No, you’ve got to say ‘My brother’ or ‘My sister’ instead.”
Weird kids. Or totally nuts Mealy. You decide.

And while you're at it...

re: Subways Running? Check I wish Silicon Valley would follow suit and ban Web 2.0 or any other word ending in 2.0.

re: Subways Running? Check Femtocell: sounds like a female terrorist group. I think it should be called Cellular Access Point (CAP). Or maybe GSM Access Point (GAP). Then we could have really small ones be called Baby GAP.

re: Subways Running? Check The H-word is now taboo in coastal Alabama. A "Hurricane" is now a "Tropical Occurrence," according to this AP story: http://www.al.com/newsflash/re...
Thought you'd want to know.

I believe an "Earthquake" in California will now be known as a "Geophysical Indiscretion."

re: Subways Running? Check and twisted a bit, tropical indiscretions might cause geophysical occurances?
