Jon Halsey: A place for clarity, a place for fun with words, too

By Jon Halsey

To Ralph Waggener: I'm in total agreement if your talking about new items or even items of public interest. Clarity and conciseness as well as language appropriate to the target audience are, in those instances of the utmost importance. Your weekly newsletter is a good example.

However, there are a few of us who enjoy such pursuits as crossword puzzles, satire, irony and such. There are even a few of us who have just enough smart aleck in them to occasionally tweak the body politic and provide an opportunity for the few who might be interested, "would have to look up in order to understand.."

I didn't really mean to create such a stir - just having a little fun.

- Jon Halsey, Knifley, KY
