High-Class Words

high-class words

blue-collar writers
have rights to white-collar words
like declivitous

"Reporters used to be blue-collar;
at the Globe now, it's practically
required that you have a trust fund."
—Howie Carr

This haiku inspired by Michael Perry,
a blue-collar writer who uses all
of the right blue- and white-collar words.
