Folks, it is time for us (to wit, some of you) to exercise a little diligence when typing your electronic mail and sundry on-line correspondences. My anger waxes every time I see “thx for ur time” and “plz, what r ur thots” and “thru ur last day.” This is becoming an epidemic. Is it that hard to hit the y and the o on your way past the u? You can even type them all with the same hand.
Let us ponder how little extra effort it would take to write something beautiful. Let us ponder how little time it saves us to settle for something so ugly, so base, so low-down. Let us ponder how little we care for our friends and loved ones, that we force them to struggle to find words where there are none. And after pondering, let us care enough to move our fingers that extra inch, and produce something that we are confident our grandparents and our grandchildren will be able to read.
Thank you for your time.
