and the readers speak

This letter to the Editor in the Eastern Graphic -- one of the country's last family owned independent weekly papers left in the country -- made my day. The readers are, after all, the final editors.

This week (as in most weeks) there was a report in the Georgetown Court news of yet another breech of probation”. Looking the word “breech” up in yields this

(#1) definition: Breech, The lower rear portion of the human trunk; the buttocks.

Since this is a family publication, I won’t develop this thought further. Sufficient to say, spell check can’t do all the work.

Good work Tom, and good on The Graphic for running the letter.

(NOTE: I had to edit this psot twice, both times to remove a teh. When is teh going to become an acceptable way or writing the?)
