James Kilpatrick’s columns, which appeared weekly in The News for a number of years, would be much better examples for AP writers and others to follow.
We are not part of the British Empire. Those who are enamored with Britishisms should not be foisting them on the rest of us. I refer to such things as early on, went missing, tarmac roundabouts, none of which add any clarity or enlightenment.
Maybe the Associated Press style book is better than Associated writing, but I hope The News will re-think the example it follows.
