Please! I wish my dad had called me a "little pig." Ok, maybe I don't. But still, a slight tinge of a verbal unleashing when a child has not behaved responsibly is called for. The worse part of his whole message was the "pig" reference. And like I said, compared to the "tempered" spankings I got as a kid--before the public outcry against such methods of punishment--I'll take the one-word insult.

Freedom of Speech seems to be rubbish nowadays. People being persecuted for the vocalization of their integrity and honesty. As much as any of us has a right to listen to what we choose, so do they have the right to say it. It may not all be agreeable to our ears--a la Imus--but Freedom of Speech should lead to rebuttals and discourse, not banishment and isolation.

To banish these people is to concede that one does not have the wherewithal to debate, or intelligence to make a sound case AGAINST that person's supposed indiscretions. This ubiquitous censorship is a dumbing down of an already suffocating society, one where we all have to suck back our words.
