Quote for the Day: Russell Baker

The cheap contractions and revised spellings of the advertising world which have made the beauty of the written word almost unrecognisable — surely any society that permits the substitution of “kwik” for “quick” and “e.z.” for “easy” does not deserve Shakespeare, Eliot, or Michener.

- Russell Baker (1925 - )
American journalist, author, humorist, columnist (New York Times)
