obsticlesIs that like a popsicle that the obstetrician gives you? (I thought of a more chilling example of obstetrician + popsicle, but the collective shudder that would have erupted from my female readers might have triggered a seismic event.)
Perhaps I am a journalistic snob, but a writer who dismisses pathologically bad spelling regularly foisted on the public by simply saying he or she “never made any claim to being a spelling expert,” is undeserving of the title of “writer.”So what are the reasons? Is it important? Is Kushibo simply a smug superyuh sombitch who should see a proctologist about having the stick up his arse removed?
Spelling is not a specialty of writing, like cardiology is to medicine. It is part and parcel of the writing package, more like being able to park is to driving. How much would we tolerate it if drivers just left their cars in the middle of traffic, telling people who complain that, “I never made any claim to being a parking expert.”
Well, outside of Seoul it would not be tolerated!
