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.

To coal region smart , I am pretty sure the writer was trying to be" tongue in cheek" , when he used the word erudite in reference to Maresca, while proving his point. There is simply no need to make sure everyone knows you have a college education , when writing , by constantly wearing out the dictionary. We get it , you are smart (at least when it comes to English) , not so smart in other areas , since you are a cult Trump follower. A really good writer knows how to bring a reader into the story line with the author and makes them feel like they are a part of the story. I agree with Bob 100 percent !!
