On Writing: In defense of Strunk & White. A guest column by Clint J. Farr

Capital City Weekly - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 12:30am
I made the mistake of emailing Jim Hale an opinion. I sent him a mewling defense of the classic writing guide “The Elements of Style” by Strunk & White the day after his column questioned its utility. In true professorial style, he asked me to be a guest columnist defending his target, a little tome Hale critiques as full of “punctilious little hyper-correct uber-grammatical ultra-syntactical imperatives.”
