I live in Idaho but when I hear stupid laws like this it makes me cringe. Listen there are many offensive words out there worse than the "N" word. We are a free society I thought. Listen mayor, there is a saying that I was told when I was young and it is "sticks and stones will break your bones but names could never hurt you" I dont use the word (but have in the past like everyone else has) or like the word. I think proposing this law is offensive to all people so maybe we should fine the mayor. Grow up and learn to live life and ignore the ignorant. When someone physically abuses someone for being a certain race then hang them, but not for the word.......
