Wearing shirts advocating hurting anyone, even in jest, is very inappropriate and there is no reason for anyone in their right mind to wear them.
I would only wear it to stir the pot, not to make any real statement.
I'm not the one to universally define who anyone-in-their-right-mind is and what right-mind actually is
Look at all these New Jerseyans! I lived in Asbury Park for quite a while as a kid. (One of the reasons I was so interested in your story, Mary, was that several of my friends from NJ have gotten married. One guy's wife treats him like garbage, and I actually suggested that he consider divorcing her! This was before I knew how the law was arranged.)quote]I've never been to Asbury Park. I did, however, just get back from Wildwood.I could be wrong, but my perception is that Jersey is a little bit better than PA.
A clarification: I don't think offensive t-shirts should be prohibited. I'm a believer in First Amendment rights. A true believer.But that doesn't mean I don't have the right to tell someone her shirt is offensive.
BQ noted... think, correct me if I am wrong, that wearing a shirt that said FUCKERS was the problem, not the anti-bush statement, especially in a public place with lots of children.

Could be right, a 70-80 yr old woman (acordng to police) could be offeded by this "Bollocks to Blair" T-Shirt http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/competitionnews/392/68779.html ps (for cm) maybe Al is at the Broadway Hotel in Worcestershire, just a thought.

QuoteCould be right, a 70-80 yr old woman (acordng to police) could be offended by this "Bollocks to Blair" T-Shirt I would have complained. That sort of blatent use of obscenitites to get a reaction is not free speach, it is stupidity. You have a right to say what you need to, but not exactly HOW you want to, if it is obviously offensive and inappropriate. What the hell was she thinking wearing that shirt knowing there would be kids around. She is an idiot. God help us all from idiots with a copy of Constitution for Dummies in their desk.
