LOS ANGELES, CA –
If one loves language, if one loves its power and beauty, isn’t it pretty stupid to spend all of one’s time reading writing that butchers it? That steamrolls it, shoots it a hundred times, hacks it to pieces with machetes, and then napalms it? And wouldn’t it destroy one’s spirit to repeatedly subject it to this torture?
By this torture, I mean this torture:
“Anyone who has seen or not seen a building can always enjoy looking at one.”
“Our bodies enable us to get out of bed every morning, build ancient pyramids, or even watch our children play a game of soccer.”
