To the editor:
I was offended by Cathy Hamilton’s repeated use of the word “freaking” in her column in the March 3 edition of the Journal-World.
The objectionable word is not only a synonym for a common, vulgar word. It is also sophomoric on the part of a writer of Mrs. Hamilton’s perceived refinement and local fame. Instead of setting a good example for her readers, she has chosen a word used by adolescents to impress their peers. Why?
