My son’s school did some community service work at the Dubuque Arboretum. They have a Veteran’s Memorial there. For whatever reason, his classmates started spitting on it. They thought it was funny; we don’t know why.
My son had the nerve to say “what the HELL are you doing?”
He got in trouble for saying hell. Nothing happened to those who spit on the memorial.
This is what matters in Dubuque. This is how life has been at Washington all year. My son said “hell”, and that was a bad thing. Spitting is ok, even if it is on a memorial for all veterans from Dubuque.
