The Toronto Star – Letters to the Editor – Letter of the day 

RE.: Simply clear and concise, by design, by Judy Steed, @ BIZ, Oct. 29. 

Perhaps the article should be mandatory reading in all English classes. 

The story reminds me of my high school English teacher who taught us to be terse and precise with the flow of the language. Her most memorable remark was: “I am sorry I did not have the time to write you a short letter.” 

This adage clearly shows that one must take time to think before putting thoughts into written words. 

If the rest of the world would follow the advice contained in the article, then a lot of time could be saved in the future. 

Thank you for allowing me to express my views to you. Keep smiling.
