My triumvirate today is all about the power of the written word.
Last week The Boston Globe sent out the call and today, approximately 350 newspaper have answered by publishing editorials in support of a free press, decrying the Orange Ogre’s attacks against the media. You will find them here by state; their words are powerful and true.
Maddow shared how important spelling is. I admit to laughing but I was not really surprised at all but the spelling is epic…so epic!
This August seems to be completely fulfilling Derek Walcott’s spectacular poem: Dark August.
There you have my things for today. Want to see more things? Head on over to Carole’s!
I have no words for the Maddox piece, ugh. The times are truly frightening. I’m going to tuck away the poem to reflect on when we are up north on the coast and hit a week of fog and rain.
I saw that “perspective rolls” thing on Twitter and it made me simultaneously guffaw and groan. I guess things like this mean that I have job security for quite a long time?
Sadly, spelling and grammar seem to be a thing of the past. Maybe we should start a new hashtag.
*Hopefully, my spelling and grammar are correct throughout this comment. 😉
Hooray for The Boston Globe!
Well . . . it appears our “perspective” just continues to “roll” downhill. (Sad trombone music.)
Words do matter. as does spelling! Kym’s comment made me LOL. in that sad way we’re all getting too used to.
THANK you for the State by state Free Press Stories. So important!!! Iwould have missed it . Im sending it to AL
Your post reminds me of two quotes:
1. We live at the level of our language. (from a novel I read but can’t remember which one)
2. Words are the house we live in or something to this effect. I recall seeing this in January 2016 on a poster.
