TalkBack@ArizonaRepublic.comon Sunday, 31 July 2005. In this case, PC is used to stand for Personal Computer and not Political Correctness; however, in this case, it is too bad the PC did stand for Personal Computer.The Saturday, 30 July 2005, Business section of the Arizona Republic had a short blurb about the week of 1-7 August being "PC-Turnoff Week." In this case "PC" stands for its original meaning "Personal Computer." In other words, the PC-Turnoff Organization wants kids to turn off their computer for a week. Too bad the "PC" doesn't stand for "Political Correctness." Just image how much fun it would be if we could turnoff political correctness for an entire week--maybe we would experience some real "free speech." With respect to turning off computers, I don't know what benefits are going to be derived without also implementing TV-Turnoff, Cell Phone-Turnoff, Hollywood-Turnoff, Mall-Turnoff, and so on.
