BOSTON (AP) - The town of Middleborough, Mass., doesn't like people cursing in public. It's even had a bylaw on the books prohibiting public profanity since 1968. Over the summer the town approved a proposal that allows police to enforce the ban with a $20 fine, but it's not sitting well with the state's top law enforcement official. Citing free speech guarantees, Attorney General Martha Coakley recommends that the town either change or repeal the measure.
