Words and Definitions

A couple recent news stories I read offered some food for thought, or at least a good laugh.

One story talked about a British official's recent brush with the law in mistakenly writing off some personal video rentals and x-rated movie rentals from her husband. The spokesperson in trying to explain it says, "x-rated videos are not porn."

Oh?

And on this side of the pond, a Wisconsin school was having another brush with political correctness. In a recent incident, it supposedly corrected the symbol for the school's logo - W - for Warriors - by substituting what they termed a more gender-friendly symbol and word - knight.

I'll let you think on that one.
