Re: John Marks maybe did something right

"Rich vocabulary and interesting sentence structure are one thing, but ...."adequately informed participation in democratic society requires a basic familiarity with our common cultural legacy as much as it does a familiarity with the mechanics of our system of government."?? The word "ostentatious" bubbles up."

It is not ostentatious at all. It is perfectly good English written at the 15th grade level instead of the 10th grade level used for business writing (and probably also the guide for popular magazines).

Maybe you couldn't handle 15th grade English and deserved the D?? Did you take the course while in the 14th grade, per chance? :-)
