Dinosaurs - gone with the wind

Postby Brian Jordan » Thu Jan 15, 2015 1:00 pm

The word, at any rate, has been puffed out of existence by New York City:
The New York City Department of Education is waging a war on words of sorts, and is seeking to have words they deem upsetting removed from standardized tests.

Fearing that certain words and topics can make students feel unpleasant, officials are requesting 50 or so words be removed from city-issued tests.

The word “dinosaur” made the hit list because dinosaurs suggest evolution which creationists might not like
