The Pot Making a Racial Statement

Sunday, 4 June 2006

It gives a false impression, spell check does. Though it attempts to be thorough, can we really expect it to replace the eagle-eye capabilities of a careful editor?

Recently, I was most appalled to read that “fortune coolies” were to be served at a luncheon held at a Chinese restaurant.

Besides the Divine injunction against cannibalism, it’s just not P.C. to refer to the hired help as coolies any longer.

In the words of my revered teacher, Dr. P, “spell check will never correct pubic library.”
