I wrote a story about the tea party this morning and submitted it to the Tallahassee Democrat. It kept being bounced back with this message -
"removed the words listed below and resubmit" - Dick
I did not have any editor named Dick so I kept trying to send it in because no words were highlighted in the article. Finally - I wrote to my editor Mark and he said -
The Democrat's computer is flagging the word "Dick" as in Dick Armey! You are not allowed to use "Dick" anymore in the newspaper or on the web page.
So I changed "Dick" to "D ick" and it went through. Talk about being politically correct!
