    What I think is hilarious is that so many people complained about the f-word and other swearing and no one seemed to complain that Holden smoked and drank through the whole book.

    It's not just back then. If you hear people complaining about it today and saying it doesn't belong in school, they will talk about the language (which isn't that bad). I think the kid smoking like a chimney is worse than the language.

    Of course, people that complain about such things don't read the book. Somebody just read them a paragraph and they base their complaint on that (usually).
