Along these lines, ive wondered lately about people throwing around words like "crazy" or "insane" every five minutes as a descriptive meaning "intense" or "extreme". Shouldnt that be just as offensive to the mentally ill as "retarded" is to the mentally disabled? We now care enough about the mentally challenged enough to not say "retarded". When, if ever, will we extend the PC courtesy to the deranged?
