It amazes me that some people seem overjoyed at the growth of a nanny state that controls thought.

What's reprehensible is the parents who don't bring up their kids to value ordinary courtesy. The laws shouldn't be necessary, and if the parents did their job they wouldn't be. If I'd used either word as a teenager my Dad would have slapped me through a wall; I know because I used one of them -- once.

So how are you bringing up your kids?
