[index] [2,353 page views]
Tagged As: Society

There are a lot of words in the English language, the last printed edition of the Oxford English Dictionary contained more than 615,000 of them. From that list, there are a variety of words and colloquialisms that "can't be said" for a variety of reasons dictated by society. And if the Special Olympics have their way, the word "retard" may soon be amongst them. While normally the Special Olympics are overlooked by mainstream society, an unintended verbal gaffe by President Obama on the Tonight Show (referring to his bowling ability as on par with the Special Olympics) may have actually provided a coincidentally timed spotlight on the organization to get their message out.
