I suppose next...
... the word police will take the gays slurs and N-words out of Stephen King novels?
Frank, thanks for that - but to be extra-fair, I'm a fan of Stephen King and his work but
I've never read one of his novels (who has time to read?) so I feel I should remind readers
that King's alleged use of "gay slurs and N-words" is without proper foundation.
I should do that sometime...
Take a week off and read a book or two...
You remind me:
I would fight (but not die for) Quentin Tarantino's right to use whatever language he wants
in his movies. Tarantino writes street dialog, he writes the dialog that many America's use,
not that not that stale/canned crap we hear on most TV shows.
When's the last time you heard someone say, "You've signed my death warrant,"
or "I'll keep my dance card open for you," or "Fuck Saddam, we're taking him out!"
It doesn't happen!
Damn, I wish I'd seen Tarantino's Pulp Fiction with a full house the day it premiered.
Can you imagine the tension during that early "What?" shootout?
Can you imagine the uncomfy silence in the theater when Marsellus Wallace barked,
"Where's my nigga?" to the murder-anybody-anytime Samuel J. Jackson?
Can you imagine the reaction in the theater when Quentin-in-character asked,
"Did you see a sign outside my house that said, 'Dead Nigger Storage?' "
I saw that in my La-z-Boy in 1998.
I laughed so hard I broke my hip when I heard that
