Words and Actions

June 25, 1989

In their June 11 letters denouncing "word taboos," Eric Borer and Evan S. Marlowe seem to be saying: Because our society is permeated with vulgarity, violence and crime and because "we have as much to fear from ribaldry as from dirty laundry," let us be rid of all taboos.

If I understand their message, vice should not be taught as evil, because it is part of our society.

This kind of mentality led to the downfall of Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome.
