McKay Hatch’s No Cussing Campaign Extended to Los Angeles County

McKay Hatch is responsible for my finding it necessary to hold comments on my blog until I can check them for decency, for of everything I have written during the past three years, nothing has aroused such ire and filthy and disgusting talk as the news of McKay Hatch. This courageous youngster has made a call for us to clean up our language, beginning his campaign at his school campus in Pasadena, Ca. Because of his actions, he and his family have been castigated, and, almost unbelievably, have even received death threats.

Tomorrow the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to issue a proclamation by Supervisor Michael Antonovich making the first week in March No Cussing Week in the nation’s most populous county; 10 million people live in LA County. Again, I commend McKay Hatch for his valor and for his lofty ideals.

On Tuesday, the board is scheduled
to issue a proclamation by Supervisor Michael Antonovich making the
first week in March No Cussing Week.

That would
mean no blue language from the Mojave desert, where it gets hot as
$&# in the summer, to the Pacific Ocean, where on a winter’s day it
can get colder and nastier than %$#!

Not that
15-year-old Hatch expects complete compliance. When his No Cussing Club
meets at South Pasadena High School on Wednesdays it’s not unusual for
a nonmember to throw open the door and fire off a torrent of
four-letter words. He’s also been the target of organized harassment by
pro-cussers.

And Antonovich’s county motion carries no penalties.

“But
it’s a good reminder for all of us, not just young people but
everybody, to be respectful to one another and watch the words we use,”
said the supervisor’s spokesman, Tony Bell.

The
county isn’t the first entity to try to put the lid on swearing.
Hatch’s hometown of South Pasadena declared itself a cuss-free zone for
a week last March, and two years ago a high school in Canada threatened
to suspend repeat cussers.

Hatch has lofty goals.

“Next
year I want to try to get California to have a cuss-free week. And
then, who knows, maybe worldwide,” said the 10th grader, who believes
if people treat each other with more civility they can better work
together to solve bigger problems.

  1. Sis. Buxton – I have always waited to approve the comments on my blog before allowing them to be viewed publicly. Even so, I have had very hateful mesages sent to me which attacked not only me but my husband and children. It is my blog and I refuse to post anything so rude. I don’t understand how people can be so mean to attack children?!?!

    This McKay Hatch has not held a gun to anyone’s head forcing them not to cuss and those who despicably fight him are unlearned, rude people. Furthermore, they show greater ignorance to spew their filth on your blog. If I were a betting person, I’d bet some of these defenders of vile language have serious issues with any authority. They are/were probably in the office for disciplinary action more than the classroom for instruction. If they have offspring, they will certainly reap what they sow.
