Which N-word is it?

July 10, 2013 

My motto when I was growing up was: When you get somebody down you kick the hell out of them.

That is what every news reporter on every television station in this country is doing to chef Paula Deen for using the N-word. Now my 1947 Webster's Dictionary has 491 words in it beginning with the letter "n." I am confused. I want someone, anyone, in this crazy politically correct La La Land of Oz who is smarter than I am to write a letter to the BND explaining which N-word Paula Deen used. And I want the BND to print that letter.
