What I'm curious about is that, if he doesn't have a son (according to his own bio) where did this kid come from?

It's an homage to GOP hero Joe McCarthy, who would rent a son for campaign photos.

I never really thought "coont" was a sexist term. An offensive term signifying extreme derision and antipathy, yes, that originated in sexual slang, for sure, but sexist, no. It's like cock. I'm as likely to use one or the other, regardless of gender. There's perfectly good reasons to call a person a coont, a motherfarker, a cock, a cocksucker, or any number of cranky names.

Of course, mowing your lawn isn't one of them. So, that said, if this story is true, it isn't so much sexist as it is hilariously elitist in believing that knowingly putting autistic kids in environments where they're going to be exposed to loud but normal noises is somehow wrong on the part of people who make those loud but socially normal noises.

Oh boo hoo, boo hoo, your autistic child can't handle loud noises. You are responsible for his well-being; you move to somewhere where he won't be exposed to that stimulus if you're that upset by it.

Well even though one would logically think that "cock" and "coont" would be synonymous terms, the only difference being gender, the only thing that really matters is how the terms are taken. You can call a guy either words but call a girl a coont and something bad is likely to happen. I don't make the rules, I just abide by them.

Dr. Mojo PhD: Of course, mowing your lawn isn't one of them.


According to the article, he didn't ask her to stop mowing until the second conversation (the first conversation was about a political issue she supports and he doesn't). He walked away mad from the first conversation because they disagreed and only later did he return to mention that her mowing was bothering the child.

If the noise from the mower was really bothering his child, it would have been the first thing he mentioned, not politics.

HotWingConspiracy: Foster, a woman and a boy of about 3 or 4 came out and walked up to Smith-Heck and her neighbor. Foster said, "I want to introduce you to my son, Chase. I want to introduce you to the person whose night you ruined."

I don't think I could have contained my laughter. I seriously would have laughed in their faces.

Plus I would have done the "WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU WITH THE MOWER RUNNING" routine.


My mom's neighbor is a nosy old bat that always has something to complain about. I was over there earlier in the month power washing my mom's patio and the old bat comes out to complain because water was getting on her car port. I played "MOTOR RUNNING" deaf combined with "I'M A NICE GUY, OF COURSE I'LL PRESSURE WASH YOUR PATTIO WHEN I'M DONE" for about 15 minutes with her. She went away shaking. I thought I was going to have to call an ambulance.

Where does one find a random autistic kid and an unflappably zoned-out woman on such short notice?

I'm trying to imagine the conversation.

"Hey lady! Is that kid autistic?"

"No, he just likes to quote Dane Cook in the middle of the street."

"Look, I'll give you ten bucks a piece if you come with me so I can call some lawnmowing b*tch a 'coont.'"

"Okay, I guess."

"Don't swallow any spittle until after I'm done with her, okay kid?"

"If you use tact, you can say anything and make it funny."

"Whatever kid, just look pitiful for five minutes, got it?"

On Tuesday evening, Foster was visiting a home on Lansing's south side when he walked up to the fence and asked Michigan Nurses Association staffer Julia Smith-Heck to stop mowing her lawn.

Screw you buddy, she can mow her lawn when she wants, within reason.

He returned shortly afterward, demanding again that she stop mowing, saying it was bothering his autistic son.

Yeah, fark you again...

Foster said, "I want to introduce you to my son, Chase. I want to introduce you to the person whose night you ruined."

He then walked away, asking Smith-Heck, "Are you going to apologize?" She responded, "For mowing my lawn?" Foster said, "So you're not going to apologize"? She repeated, "For mowing my lawn?" Foster yelled across the street, "You're a coont!"


OK, now THAT's a paddlin'...

What a douchebag. WHy do people keep voting these pricks into office?

Now, on a totally different note...

He returned shortly afterward, demanding again that she stop mowing, saying it was bothering his autistic son. [Foster does not have children, according to his official bio information.]

Foster, a woman and a boy of about 3 or 4 came out and walked up to Smith-Heck and her neighbor. Foster said, "I want to introduce you to my son, Chase.


What is THAT all about? Has he got some honey on the other side of town, raising his love child in seclusion? Nobody let this cat get back in the bag, I want to know what's up with this little mess... I mean, it doesn't sound like he was at home, since it says he was "visiting" a home on that side of town...

It says his website is "designed to keep you up-to-date on current events in Michigan and inform you of the things that I'm working on as your state representative.", I sure hope clearing the air on this little clusterfark counts.

I live in the American Gardens Building on West 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Frank Foster. I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial masque which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. If someone is mowing their law, I tell the coont to knock it off. There is an idea of a Frank Foster. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.

And as a fellow father who has to deal with more than the usual number of meltdowns, *fistbump*


In related news, I went off on someone at work once and called her a biatch. In my defense, she had just made a personal insult against me, I had a family member dying of cancer, and I was stressed to the limit. Apparently HR had my pink slip ready to go within an hour, but my manager pulled strings and convinced them just to drag me to a room in HR and tell me what a very naughty boy I was.

First off, good on you. I used one for a few years. The drawbacks were it took 2 passes to get everything short. But it was good exercise. I like to find alternatives to electrical solutions when I can (hanging clothes instead of dryer, etc).

Second, noise pollution is a result of people thinking they can live their lives. Some are louder than others. That's kind of how it goes. Living like you are on egg shells just so you don't offend your neighbor isn't going to last very long.

I agree with this. IMHO, "c*nt" is a gender-marked term but not any more offensive than, say, "cock", and (especially in some dialects of English) it isn't used to refer exclusively to women.
