Not so. Reached Thursday, the magazine's editor, Frank Foer, said he e-mailed the profanity-laden illustration to some staffers and decided to nix Schumaker's work, not wanting to present something that was "unnecessarily antagonizing to readers." Meanwhile, Pinker's article "What the F***? Why We Curse" in the current edition, has a litany of eyebrow-raising curses and other offensive words. "We wanted to give the essay a chance," explained Foer, adding he would be happy to work with the illustrator again. — R.F.
