Southeast Texas Goes P.C. - Officials to temper biting term: "Officials to temper biting term
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

THE Anahuac City Council has dealt with sensitive topics on occasion, and today's meeting could provide another opportunity.

Tammy McDaniel, the animal control officer in that Chambers County town, has suggested replacing the word 'bitch' in the city's animal control ordinance with 'female dog.'

'It's a term that's been around forever. Even kennel clubs use that word,' McDaniel said. 'But people don't like to hear it called out.'"

I just hope this doesn't affect the Gatorfest.
