Hawthorne's big neighbor to the east, Paterson, has passed a resolution banning the word nigger. I can't find details on the resolution. So I don't know what the punishment is for using the word. Also, I wonder if they can come after me now.
Councilman Anthony Davis wants them to take a shot at breaking a bad habit. Davis says he expects people to police themselves since there's no fine involved.
Whew, OK, I'll police myself. I hope the library gets rid of their copies of Tom Sawyer.
BTW that's Anthony "Eboney" Davis.
I deleted his picture.)
