Not Enough Weeks
Published: August 11, 2010
Recently, I discovered an interesting article by Mr. Wrong. The article (“The Mr. Wrong Column Is Now Monthly,” June 30) speaks of Mr. Wrong’s column now being presented once a month instead of weekly.
The only thing I do not understand is why is he using blatant profanity? I counted at least eight different times the “f-word” was used. Is this really necessary?
The article was at least six paragraphs long, But the profane word he used was represented in its plural and singular form. Was this necessary?
The use of profanity in a public publication shows a lack of respect for your readers, a lack of journalistic professionalism, and a lack of respect for yourself.
I do not speak this way, none of my friends speak this way, and you should be aware that young people also read your publication. We should try to set an example, at least for their sake.
