Irresponsible language

My family loves living in a “ski town” and I thoroughly endorse the X Games for the excitement and enthusiasm they bring to our town.

I have a son in the eighth grade at Aspen Middle School. He is an avid skier, a happy student and a constant reader of the newspaper articles on the X Games.

Could Friday’s front page article have said the same while leaving out the “F” word. I’m trying to teach my “impressionable” teenager to be responsible in his actions and with his language.
