I don’t know if I’ve posted this before, and I’m sorry if I have. But I think it’s worth reading again.
Reading through Thomas Sowell’s “Some Thoughts on Writing” (again), I came across a gem in his section on editing.
Too many academics write as if plain English is beneath their dignity and some seem to regard logic as an unconstitutional infringement of their freedom of speech.
If I ever become an academic, this is one quote I hope will always be fresh in my mind. Thanks, Dr. Sowell
