Now for something a bit different...
California's state Assembly passed Concurrent Resolution 112 yesterday, which, if approved by the Senate, will declare the first week of March as "Cuss Free Week" in that state. The resolution grew from the efforts of a teenager in South Pasadena who started the No Cussing Club three years ago (which now has members in every state and worldwide). It encourages the people of California, including its lawmakers, to take the No Cussing Challenge - placing money in a "swear jar" for each use of foul language, and then donating the money to charity.
The resolution, if passed, is not designed as something to be enforced, but rather "to set a tone of harmony and connectedness in our communities, and to inspire ourselves to higher endeavors".
