This is in Cornish, NH. A school board member described people at a meeting as "ftards" on facebook. She then claimed it in the singular then said she would not resign unless it affected her kids. Sorry the use of the word "tards" is a word of ignorance and offensive, this isn't the 1980s where even newspapers described learning disabilities as "retarded", newspapers stopped doing this. This like the n word needs to go. Yes I remember the r word was a very popular insult in the 1980s and before, but most of us realized that it was offensive and stopped. article She obviously hasn't and should resign.
