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.

  1. 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…
