Um, according to an article (that contains a lot of iffy grammar, by the way--I think they should be embarrassed) in the School Library Journal Online, when librarians at the ALA conference heard that Neil Gaiman's twitter post read “F---!!!! I won the F---ING NEWBERY THIS IS SO F---ING AWESOME. I thank you", "some librarians were already expressing disappointment, saying such language was inappropriate".
...maybe they ARE out of touch.
Hmm. Some of the grammar in the article has already been corrected in the five minutes since I first read it. I mean, that's good, but... weird. Also makes it harder for me to be snippy. Am glad I didn't mention the bad grammar in my already-snippy comment about the first line (about the Newbery finally ending its "slump").
ETA: link. The article has been edited a few times already from when I posted, which is... interesting.
