Watch Your Mouth, California

Of all the pieces I’ve written over the four years that I have maintained this blog, the reporting of McKay Hatch received more negative and offensive remarks than anything I’ve covered. Remember him? The 13 year old Pasadena youngster began a “no-cussing” club, and unbelievably, he began receiving death threats because of his actions. I cover the entire story in the linked article here.

Despite ridicule and death threats, McKay has persisted with his very successful program, and now has chapters around the world. A few hours ago, came the report that the California Assembly has passed a resolution declaring the first week of March each year as “Cuss-Free Week.”

Once more, I salute McKay Hatch for his principled, brave actions. Again, I say, there are some fine young people in this world.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

I never did understand the malice against the kid for what he did? I guess just like with lawyers at an all time high there is no longer such a thing as an innocent accident, that there is now no longer anything inoffensive enough to draw fire from some people.

But of course it is California, so who knows…
