I have been stewing about this since last week, and I just can’t stay silent.

I love our town, and I support freedom of speech, however, I cannot stay silent when words are used on the front page of a newspaper, any newspaper that is there for the public to see! A word that was just bleeped on the Oscars and every mainstream newspaper and television show. There has to be a way to get the point across without using offensive language. There is freedom of speech but also there is room for decency and respect. I just wanted to let you know my opinion.
