Better editing please

By Staff | Apr 9, 2019

To the editor:

I can appreciate the difficulty in journalism of keeping what gets into print free of offensive language, but I also feel that better copy editing would have removed (or re-worded) the expression “Chinese fire drill” from Capt. Bill Russell’s “On the Water” column published on April 3.

It conveys an unfair and negative image that I’m certain our Chinese neighbors and friends would deem offensive.
