A Kashmiri friend tells me my language is a problem for those whose first language is not English. I know in the past when I’ve used sarcasm in my posts that it has confused & caused indignation. I’m committed to the notion that language is to communicate, not to razzle-dazzle. So if my language is an issue, please let me know & I’ll try to figure out a way to communicate better. Unfortunately the damns and hells & crazy-pants stuff will not be modified since damnations are such a part of my psyche.
