(Newser) – The New York Times has always held a firm anti-profanity stance. Until now, apparently. On page 86 of the August 25, 2013, issue of T, the Times’ fashion magazine, the iconic newspaper’s edgy arm dropped the f-bomb. "Quit [f-ing] black cops or get booted from the Communist party. There stood the ultimatum, the absurd total of the message conveyed to Rose Zimmer…" That’s the opening line to Jonathan Lethem’s Dissident Gardens, a novel about several generations of a radical family in Queens. He was featured, along with four other authors, in a story about the rooms where writers work.
