"When Kevin Morrissey walked to the old coaling tower near the University of Virginia campus late last month and shot himself in the head, he not only ended his own life, he exposed turmoil within the small staff of The Virginia Quarterly Review that now threatens the future of the high-profile journal."
But the idea that we should use formal prose at all times is, not to mince words, absurd. …In that case, we would speak and write like the voice that gives directions in my GPS, even when speaking to children: “Please do not put your finger into the electric socket.” Movie dialogue would have to be rewritten: “Badges? We do not have badges! We do not need any badges! I am not obliged to show you any malodorous badges!”
