The "V" Word

Good Mourning Widows,
Joy to you and me!
Remember Jimmy Durante?
Remember, "Everybody wants to get into 'da act!"
Well, why should I be any different?
There, I said it.
There's a great big ruckus going on 20 miles north from where the World Trade Center used to be.
And it's all because of the vagina word.
In case you haven't heard, or seen CNN, Oprah, Good Mourning, America! or read The Journal News, what's going on is 3 John Jay High School students said the v word at an open mic assembly after they promised school officials they wouldn't use the v word.
So they lied.
Who cares?
What matters, it seems, is in the name of free speech, these rebels have created a buzz and are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame and then some.
In their own fashion, they have created college opportunities, given the author of "The Vagina Monologues" a million bucks worth of free advertising, and they have caused an entire school district to buckle under and issue a giant mea culpa.
All because of the vagina word. All because 3 students broke a promise.
And this is a score for women?
I scrunch my hat.
Have a joy-filled day widows. And remember, we're not alone!
