The Thick-Skin Society

How about a group that’s the antithesis of an anti-defamation alliance? Call it the Thick-Skin Society. Its central belief: We believe in total free speech, so go ahead, take your best shot! We welcome it. This multicultural group would monitor the media, from TV to blogs, and cry howls of protest when some group hasn’t been insulted lately. “This patronizing conspiracy of hushed namby-pamby niceness must stop! We’re grown men and women. We can take it. We know we learn from being told about our faults. Besides, we like to know our enemies, even as we respect your right to let ‘er rip. So tell what you really think. We’ll be blunt in return, of course. Candidly yours, The Thick-Skin Society.”
