Illinois No Longer Home to "Retards"
|Illinois got with the program...but will you?|
The federal government did the same thing last October when President Obama signed Rosa's Law; now, state governments such as Illinois are following suit, prodded by the "R-Word" campaign, which is devoted to eliminating slang words like "retarded."
And thus the Land of Lincoln seems to have taken the advice of Stephen Colbert, who recently said: "Kids, don't use the R-word. It is totally gay."
