Coal region smart
I would like to make one or two comments about Bob Levins’ article about Greg Maresca’s weekly column. Bob Levins has said that Greg Maresca’s erudite observations are insightful, but his “showoff use of words are beyond the understanding of many less educated readers.” Listen, although we live in the coal region, Bob, we’re not a bunch of coal region hunkies anymore, we can understand those words — don’t insult us. You’re talking about Greg’s use of showoff words, yet in your column you use the statement “erudite observations,” “insightful,” “grandiose,” etc. So look at the kettle calling the pot black. I enjoy Greg Maresca’s columns, I agree with you they are very insightful, but once again, don’t criticize a person because he is articulate and educated. And most importantly, do not criticize the local population as being a bunch of dumb hunkies who cannot understand the basic English language. You should be ashamed of yourself.
