quote of the day

The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out the conservative adopts them.
-- ---Mark Twain, Notebook, 1935

That's true with language as well. Mom hated the word "crap" from her daughters. Now her granddaughters say much worse! I always hated the word..."s*ck".(even commercials are using such words!) Wonder what my boys will say in their teenage years!
