The S Word

Add squaw to the words that are no longer considered appropriate in polite company. So much so thar some native American tribes in Idaho want the word stricken from geographic locations throughout the west. I haven't a dog in this fight. In fact I doubt I would ever use the word "squaw" for the rest of my life unless I was playing Scrabble or something. Still, you give people too much power over you if a you allow a word , any word, to bother you. Do like the gay folks do and adopt derogatory words as your own.
