Cussing prosecutions in the Commonwealth

The Norfolk paper had this article ("Profanity cases frequent in courts," 11/14/04) about what someone who ought to know once recently described to me as "those cases where somebody called somebody a 'bitch.'" When I heard that, I had to laugh, because I had exactly such a case not too many years ago, for which I made a thorough study of the cuss word case law - yes, these cases are sometimes appealed.
