A 14-year-old boy has inspired Los Angeles County (or at least part of it) to try to go without swearing this week. 

McKay Hatch is the founder of the No Cussing Club and author of a book with the same name. His middle school friends joined him in his quest to use positive peer pressure to encourage others to stop swearing when Hatch told them how much their swearing bothered him. Now a freshman in high school, his club has more than 20,000 members in all 50 states and around the world.
