After two weeks of being very uncomfortable about the use of obsceneties in my novel "Micahton High", I decided to replace them with non-offensive words.  I've replaced the "F-Word" with the word "sex", and have been able to remove the project's "R" rating.  Most people don't find that word "sex" offensive, neither do I, and I hope anyone who reads it now, won't be offended either.
   I have now just posted chapter 3, and have begun working on chapter 4.  I will probably have that chapter completed and posted sometime next week.
  I hope any reader will enjoy the cleaned up and improved version, and let me know what he or she thinks.
  Thank you.
