The article (link below) was recently shared by a group that I’m in. A reading device that substitutes “nicer” words for all those deemed offensive in a book. Spurred some thought-provoking dialogue. It’s one of those “for” or “against” things for most people. Since the Christian Science Monitor really isn’t my bag, I would have never seen this if not for someone else pointing it out. Personally, I’m looking forward to the Guy Montag reader that removes all typos, bad words, sex, violence and, as a last resort, sets itself on fire if you are still offended.

Note: It does have the potential for hilarity for those who write erotica (I do not, for the record)…I picture something like this happening: “He slammed his rooster into her large, nocturnal semi-aquatic rodent.”
