Let's teach our youth this word. Civility.

From NRO's Media Blog:

Student journalists, great minds of tomorrow?

A four-word editorial published in the student newspaper at Colorado State University has landed the paper’s student editors in hot water with campus administrators, reports The Coloradoan:

The Rocky Mountain Collegian published an editorial
that reads, in total, “Taser this... F—- BUSH,” spelling out the expletive, along with an explanation that “this column represents the views of the Collegian’s editorial board.”

The second two words of the editorial are printed in extremely large print, about twice the size of a headline.

... In a letter addressed to the university community and Collegian readers, Jeff Browne, director of student media, said he is planning to launch an internal investigation into “the decision-making process” followed in publishing the editorial.
