Thanks for the clarification Steve. That is certainly what I meant and thought I made clear without calling out the part of speech. There is a use for retard as a verb and I never meant to imply that it shouldn't be used. It is just the slack way it is used in society now that many don't think of as seen in one of your poster's unnecessary use of it and then their subsequent defense of the use. I am glad to hear about the group at LHS. From what I understand, that is happening all across the nation and there is also a Facebook page dedicated to doing away with the R-word. Sometimes our kids are the leaders that we should follow! There thoughtfulness in making this an issue they want to take on gives me great pride and hope in the future.
