I was so offended. The Rodale publication, a cookbook called the "Thug Kitchen 101: Fast as F*ck", contained the words F--- or S--- on the cover and within every page inside. Disgusting. I don't know about all of you but I don't enjoy associating foul words (not fowl, no pun intended) with food, cooking, or anything vibrational that nourishes our bodies or souls. I believe in free speech vs censorship, but really, to have this respected publisher sink so low, and for public libraries to stock their shelves with a filthy book that children have easy access to without any warning to parents. Just makes me wonder...

Opinions?

Thank you; I thought I was the only one. My librarian suggested I fill out an official complaint form.

Does seem a little odd, but Rodale is a bunch of hippies, guess they're exercising their powers of communication and the Saturn finger as well, hehe

There should be a warning.

It started as a website. Anyone who knows the blog, knows there's a lot of swearing.

The cover of the book should have an advisory warning. You don't expect that kind of language in a cookbook.

Well what does that say about the vibration of all those followers?

We all vibrate, but the point is to increase our own.
