The times they are a-changin'

"Hubert even resorted to incendiary language--incendiary for the genial Hubert, at any rate--demanding that Jack drop 'the razzle dazzle, fizzle fazzle.'"
-Edward M. Kennedy, True Compass, re: Hubert Humphrey

"He uses fuck like a combination of comma and semicolon, to punctuate and highlight his thoughts."
-Naftali Bendavid, The Thumpin', re: Rahm Emanuel

Further proof that the tenor of public discourse has changed in the past 40 years. Though I'm not judging either of them. But I will admit I'm 1,000 times more likely to spout something closer to the latter than the former.
