The word in Milwaukee

If you, like me, have been wondering why there have been no recent updates on Kathy Schenck’s informative and entertaining blog on language at the Journal Sentinel in Milwaukee, the answer is that Words to the Wise has moved to a new address. And as always with technological advances, there were annoying and persistent problems. But the new site is up and running, and recent posts are available. I commend it to your attention.

I'll give a bump to this. More needs to be said for the good quality of editing and editors here in Milwaukee. Thanks for giving Kathy's blog some good press.
