What’s So Terrible About Inflation?

THE TIME HAS COME to take a hard look at inflation, and to reject the blind panic with which our federal government is reacting to this economic phenomenon.

'But Patrick, What's Wrong With Saying (#*★)On The Air?'

PERHAPS SOMEDAY those fundamental Anglo-Saxon expletives that form the bawdy clay of English will be as commonplace on television as the far more obscene detergent commercials. Perhaps.
