How. Not. to. be. Clever. 'You foreigners are so clever,' said a lady to me some
years ago. First, thinking of the great amount of foreign idiots and halfwits I had
had the honour of meeting, I considered this remark exaggerated but
complimentary. Since then I have learnt that it was far from it. These few words

word clever in any English dictionary, you will find that the dictionaries are out of
date and mislead ...

you ever wondered how the Internet was really invented? Well, I would like to tell
you. My name is Edson Hendricks, and I know because I am the one who

22nd, 1945, and raised in the small town of Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, right across
the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the state capital. Almost all the people
who lived in Lemoyne and neighboring towns were white, middle class,

Any letter which talks to the right person about the right subject at the right time,
and appeals to that person's self-interest, will succeed. And it does not have to be

could well frustrate your purpose, because the cleverness will get in the way of

I prefer to use simple words people have heard before. It's not hard for me.
Somehow parading my stupidity just comes naturally. Once you've learned to be
simple, you can be clever. But be too clever and you lose your audience, or they
want to strangle you. Anyone watching me on The Five has experienced the urge
. Example One: Immigration Let's say the argument begins with, “I can't vote for a
Republican because they're against immigration.” How do you respond? Simplify

I know an English teacher who routinely used comments he thought were “cute”
on student essays. For example, he often wrote “KGO” in the margins of student
essays. KGO meant “keen grasp of the obvious.” He was trying to be clever, but it
