Are we too politically correct for our own good?

Original post made by Natalie O’Neill, Danville Weekly reporter, on Feb 9, 2007

This week, I had the exhilarating opportunity to interview Danville/Alamo authors and an East Bay comedian. During both conversations, the subject of Political Correctness kept rearing its head.

Dear Natalie,

Your question about PC was part of good humor among Alamo neighbors today.

Indians are from India. Native Americans are most likely Italian base on the Italian source of the the word, AMERICA. America is all the lands from the arctic ocean to the tip of Chile and we are, correctly, USAmericans, as citizens of the United States of America, and Americans among all Americans in the Americas.

None of that changes the intent of commentary by people no matter how PC the words might be. We might all agree that COMEDY is the best method to define this result.

Great topic!

Hal
