In response to my post about the use of "that word" in KNoxville, Roger Vanderveen asked whether I use it [the word "conservative"] "in general to slander conservatives." ?!? I find it astonishing that one might be taken to be "slandering" conservatives by calling them conservatives. Can one slander someone by calling by the label that rightfully belongs to them? Or has the word "conservative" become non-PC without my noticing that that has happened?
