Chuck Norris on Language
I love this quote: " I genuinely believe we can do better. I believe we must do better. We need to leave a better legacy of decency, civility and respect for future generations. I believe we need to give them our best, and our best must be more than justifying the use of derogatory language based upon cultural or racial relativity or even freedom of speech. If we're going to reverse negative trends among our youth, it's going to begin with us establishing a better model for them of how we treat and speak about others." --Chuck Norris
A few days ago I blogged about profanity. Robin Lee Hatcher recently alerted me to this column by Chuck Norris (yes, the karate/Texas Ranger Chuck Norris) that's worth checking out.

I've been working hard on the WIP, organizing another collaborative project with 200 novelists, and putting together a proposal for a devotional. No wonder I'm still working at 9 p.m.!
Today's photo: a dog, not a living mop. The Komondor is a purebred dog who happens to look like he wears dreadlocks. :-) Don't see many of those around!
