Well ... a former classmate of mine in Alabama wrote a law review article in 1988 regarding the bumper sticker "Fuck Iran"

He mentioned Fuck nearly 50 times. I am trying to find the article.

That's funny the author is at Moritz (OSU, Columbus, OH.) There is somewhat of a tradition in liberal thinking coming out of Moritz: My court-appointed mentor and then friend, tenured professor Lou Jacobs taught there prior to retirement. He noted in a letter scanned right here:

.....that racism, ignorance and reactionary politics played a role in my suspension from practice. Also, given my use of the F and N bombs on my blawg, I'll find this interesting reading.

Peace.

Haven't read the article yet, I just downloaded.

But the fact that it covers the use of the celebrated term in sexual harassment cases reminded me of an old assignment. Back in law school, I had to do a Memorandum of Law for a colleague, he owned a business and he fired a woman employee, the last thing he told her was: "No, your problem is that you just don't give a fuck!"

Well, it took sixteen pages of legal folderol, but I guess the judge agreed with my analysis that my colleague hadn't used the term in a sexual way.
