Epidemic word degradation infects entertainment, which claims household dialog as a casualty. Parents and children hurl profanity at each other like knife throwers.

To more than 50 percent of the population, a beautiful story, painstakingly composed by a talented author, resembles legal contractural jargon. With illiteracy impeding ability to comprehend enchanting words, readers skim details, retreat to social media, or wait for the movie.
