In the May 22 Readers' Forum, Kenneth Lee Christopher complains of seeing obscene words written on a truck window and T-shirts, and goes on to reveal that police can do nothing. I am horrified by this.

Our Utopian society is being invaded by minor social evils such as the occasional dirty word, and yet our law enforcement does not drag the wicked perpetrators into the street for a public beating. There are not massive crackdowns on folks using four letter words.Perhaps if we diverted all law enforcement personnel to the task of arresting potty-mouths and displayers of dirty words, we might force these vile words back into the dark alleyways and school playgrounds where they belong.

Then again, if we really have all of this free energy to expend, perhaps we should focus on more pressing transgressions.
