Better editing, please

April 10, 2019

To the editor:

I can appreciate the difficulty in journalism of keeping what gets into print free of offensive language but I also feel that better copy editing would have removed (or re-worded) the expression, "Chinese fire drill," from Capt. Bill Russell's April 3 "On the Water" column. It conveys an unfair and negative image that I'm certain our Chinese neighbors and friends would deem offensive.
