This Week In Food: Gratuitous Use of the Fuck Word, Beer is the Fountain of Youth!

So it looks like the Dec. 16 edition of This Week in Food offended a reader. I regurgitated a post Michelle did about a nifty little website called “Where the Fuck to Drink.” Because the work fuck and alcohol always catches eyes, mine included, I included it in the headline as a featured story. Dennis of Anaheim voiced his concerns to me in an email.

“Is this acceptable reading material to you? Underneath the heading it says By Taylor Hamby. I can't believe that this is now headlines or allowable reading material that is on the OC weekly web site and on my front page of my computer. I never thought that I'd have to sensor “regular” reading material that is part of my Yahoo start page. I think you should think twice before writing something so offensive online.”

To those that I offended because I used other people's foul language in my humble rehash post, I apologize; this is a family site after all. 

Happy New Year!
