    Huh? This is about testing and the people who worry too much over words and their meanings and context. Knowing lots of teachers, they get hit constantly from all sides on just these sort of topics and believe me it ain't liberals doing all the whining, most comes from the more orthodox religious and the extreme loonies of PC. Two grandchildren recently informed me my use of 'stupid' was a bad word, I told them there were times when it fit perfectly so long as it was used politely. ;) E.G. The OP title is stupid. :lol:

    From the "link":

    The word "dinosaur" made the hit list because dinosaurs suggest evolution which creationists might not like,

    Democrats are behind Santo-torium?

    I guess he'll have a "D" behind his name if he makes it to a ballot.

    Ditch school, buy a shovel, and don't be a snob...

    Are you haunted?
