Where would we be without writers?

“Writers wallow in words like pigs in a mud puddle, and the dirtier we get, the happier we are.”

—Robert Masello, author, “Robert’s Rules of Writing: 101 Unconventional Lessons Every Writer Needs to Know (Thanks to alert WORDster Marta Murvosh)

TODAY'S WORD ON JOURNALISM ©2007 is a free "service" sent to its 1,700 or so misguided volunteer subscribers around the planet. If you have recovered and don't want the WORD anymore, send "unsubscribe." Or if you want to afflict someone else, send me the email address and watch the fun begin. (Disclaimer: I just quote 'em; I don't necessarily endorse 'em. In theory, though, all contain at least a kernel of insight.) Responses, contributions and rebuttals welcome.
