She will discuss the role of fast food in the diet. Women are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and tea are provided. No pre-registration is required. Watch What You Write Errors hurt writer, cause reader to lose train of thought A idler comes to hand from Marianna . fordon of Thorp, Wash. Every writer • liould heed what she lias to say. "1 wish more 1 letters would realize that .-iTors hurt their message in two ways: (1) XiTors cause reader's to lose their train of bought, and worse yet (2) errors lead rcudi.Ts to distrust anything the writer has io say. With one error so obvious, how much p i inre is not so obvious'.'" Wilh her letter the gentlewoman .MK'losed a clipping from The Seattle Times in which a poet was quoted as saying that ••Guatemala is my favorite place, but it just wreaks of death." Her train of thought thus •lerailed, she tore out the offending paragraph and mailed it in. Let us think upon these things. Last November the Portland Oregonian carried a tribute to veterans of the war in Vietnam: ••Wednesday is the day that Americans will gather at shrines all over the country to honor the feckless dead of a pointless war." Feckless': 1 One's train of thought screeches to a Mead stop. What in the world could the writer have meant? To be feckless is to be we;ilr, ineffective, worthless, careless, irresponsible. Headers of the "Ask Dr. Lamb" column inusl have been equally baffled by a letter thai began: "Dear Dr. Lamb: My son is in his early 40s. For the last two years he has been maligned with sudden bowel movements." Maligned? Would anyone like to Siiess at the intended verb? The Beaufort (S.C.) Gazette mystified music lovers and miffed a musician last year. The story dealt with "one of the most jespecied performers on today's music scene." The headline said. "Reputed Oboist to Visit f'Yipp Friends of Music." II seems an unkind thing to say. • Another baffler appeared in The Miami James J. KMpatrick The Writer's Art Herald a year or so ago: "Tours start at the main gate, but automobile drivers are urged to park at the city's indigenous park, near While Street Pier." Could this be a park in which plants indigenous to Florida are grown? Whither rolls the train of thought? The Birmingham (Ala.) News carried a piece by a local free-lancer who had just sold an article to Redbook magazine: "My story entails a mother of four children's feelings when she is suddenly given the writing assignment of having a beauty makeover." The sense of that sentence is murkily clear, but what was the writer looking for when she wrote "entails"? Involves? Concerns? Deals with? We can be thrown off the track by misplaced phrases. The Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald let us know of Ron and Joan Young: "The couple and their two children have been living on the farm in a house overlooking a lake that Young built of native oak." Even the respected Associated Press can mangle a sentence. "Elvis Presley didn't want to go on stage with a guitar past the age of 40, according to his former wife." We must assume that Elvis wanted only young guitars. During the recent Winter Olympics, the AP in Calgary identified Princess Anne: "She is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and an Olympic equestrian competitor." Back in 1986 the AP in London similarly identified, "Prince Andrew, 26, the son of Queen Elizabeth and Royal Navy helicopter pilot." How could the British press have missed these scandalous revelations? Minds tend to wander onto sidetracks. In February, Newsday's man in Nicaragua covered a revival led by evangelist Jimmy Swaggart. (This was before the reverend gentleman got in trouble.) "Swaggart remained cautiously anti-political during the rally." The Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot in February noted that the governor's presentation of his budget "was interpreted on two dozen occasions by applause." The Denver Post quoted actor Robert Redford on Gary Hart's triumphal tour of Hollywood parties. "People were falling all over him. Gary ended up thinking he was invisible." Sharp-eyed readers have sent in clippings of literary offenses that both astound and dismay. In Oregon we learn of a church that is "redolent of old Russia." Also in Oregon, we find a striking headline over a medical column: "Tubal Litigation Hard to Reverse." In Florida a newspaper reports that a company has been assessed $23,000 in "liquefied damages" for not completing a project on time. In Georgia, a Savannah sports writer complained in early January of "this fusel age of bowl games." Getting back to the letter from my West Coast correspondent: Her complaint is wholly justified. When we write of a doctor's "mourning rounds," or of "eminent court actions," or of "a compliment of 2,400 Israeli soldiers," readers will get the sense of what we mean, but for a fraction of a second we will have diverted their train of thought. Let us keep them on the through track instead. Kilpatrick is a syndicated columnist based in Washington, D.C.
