Jesse Sheidlower, President of the American Dialect Society on Euphemisms for Today's Q -4-4-14

TODAY on "Q" 

-- Jesse Sheidlower  -- author and President of the American Dialect Society -- makes the case for avoiding asterisks and coy euphemisms, and including "the f-word" profanity in print publications like The New York Times. Meanwhile, the New York Times politely begs to differ.

-- Neil Finn joins Jian for a chat and performance from his latest album, Dizzy Heights. The melodic New Zealander has gone from being in two major bands of the '80s and '90s -- Split Enz and Crowded House -- to a long running career as a solo singer-songwriter.
