idiot alert • a couple of Tennessee parents are pissed off because 11th graders are assigned to read Tim O’Brien’s Vietnam novel Things They Carried – and . . . it has profanities in it!!! ohmigod! they will be scarred for life! fercrissakes people they are 16 years old if they haven’t heard profanities by now, they are freaking deaf or stunted in some manner. And by the way the book is about war one of the biggest profanities of all time. Perhaps you would rather they crawl back under their mothers apron skirts and pretend the real world doesn’t exist – cause in another 18 months they will be old enough to go off and die for George Bush’s American Dream and god forbid they ever read the word FUCK before they die.
