Dr. Fiske and colleagues,
I have some ideas about why and how liberal politics and prescriptivist views on grammar can go together, and I'll be happy to write the article, if you don't already have a taker. When do you need it and how long do you want it to be?

	If you were to read The Vocabula Review you might more effectively present
	your case against (or perhaps even for) what I seek to achieve. As it is, and as
	you say, "you do not know of what I speak."
	It's terribly interesting to me how many people damn Vocabula who know
	nothing much of it.
	Why not submit that article?
