Unfortunately, I did not see the original letter to the editor on this subject, but I can comment on the mother-educator response. It disturbs me to read that a parent and educator would actually condone the use of this particular rap song, or any part of it in a school setting. This so called song contains foul language and atrocious grammar from start to finish as well as the use of the controversial "N" word; though in the so-called acceptable context we have been duped to believe is "artistic expression.

Darren O'Day is set apart from other relievers by his sidearm delivery, his own version of the “Ole” song, and his 0.92 ERA, among other things. And he can add another to the list. “I have a couple things going for me, and now I have a T-shirt,” O'Day said Wednesday, when the Orioles gave out orange T-shirts with his “O'Day” song and a silhouette logo of his sidearm delivery. “It's pretty exciting. I never expected a T-shirt.” O'Day pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, his 10th scoreless outing in a row.
