Why the New York Post Rules
Headlines like " Crazed Bum Stabs Cabby in the Bronx " Most New Yorkers would say that, all New Yorkers would think that, but only the Post would have the honesty to print those exact words. God bless the Post!
FYI, the NY Daily News also used the word bum
The NY Times was PC all the way with the story, with a headline " Livery Driver Killed In Dispute...". Yeah, some "dispute". A dispute between an honest taxi driver minding his own business and a goddamned bum who stabbed him in the neck.
