    Don't knock it. Most copy for mass communication in the United States (tabloids, talk radio, USA Today, network news) is written deliberately for an audience with the effective educational attainment of fourth grade. That is the CW for the marketing sweet spot.

    Writing for high schoolers would be "elitist."

    The NY Times is written at what, an eighth grade reading level? And that's the standard bearer. Most other papers are like 6th grade reading level, I think.

    Sounds right. IIRC The Economist is the highest, at about 10th grade.

    As a former broadcast news producer, I learned to write at an eighth grade level. Use big words and people become too engrossed in said big words.

    Big words are never the goal. The right word is the goal.

    When the chips are down, and your "enemy" is on the attack, the first thing that comes to mind is to sue a corporation. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...ium-for-terror

    Nice, France. Somebody drove a truck into a Bastille Day crowd and killed many. Other reports have the driver emerging and firing a weapon.

    Hearing 30 dead.
