Re: “The Cost of Purification

It is also unfortunate that the East Bay Express hires “journalists” who are so preoccupied with their need to ridicule their interviewees that they neglect to educate themselves on the subject of their article, or to execute even the most basic fact checks. I put the word journalist in quotes in keeping with Ms.Swan’s enthusiastic use of them throughout her article; had she even an elementary understanding of the terms she punctuates with such disdain, she might have avoided not only overusing this grammatical device but also revealing to the readership her ignorance of the subject matter.

For readers interested in learning about healthy diet and lifestyle, by the way, I would like to point out that quinoa (pronounced keen-wah, and not “kimwa”) is a south american grain rich in protein, highly digestible and very tasty. Ms. Swan might have ordered a bowl at that very moment (it is on the Cafe Gratitude menu) and begun her own foray into a healthier attitude on the spot.

Sadly, the tone of the article leads one to believe that the author was mostly concerned with distancing herself from the subject at hand, and convincing her readership of her skepticism for an otherwise worthy and important matter. I hope interested readers will pursue the subject of cleansing with an open-mindedness and precision that Ms. Swan was unable, or unwilling, to exhibit.
