Thank you Mr. Fraser for an awesome article. I like the point about how great orators don't use base language. However, I have been disappointed to see more of our so-called leaders stooping to a lower level instead of rasing it.
I can attest to the connection to reading. I find that when I got away from reading, I could not always find the right words to express my thoughts. Thank you again for the push to read more and to keep expending our vocabulary and education despit the degrading state of society.
