Is Writing an Art?

Since it is, could we justify a public expenditure to buy The Tennessean a thesaurus?

Perhaps the writer was attempting to achieve a record by including some form of the word "art"26 times in the 30 sentences of today's editorial. The word "public" appears a dozen times.

One sentence that does not include the word "art" begins with the phrase, "Taken to the max...." "The max," in this instance, turns out to be part of an argument against a straw man.

The editorial unintentionally makes a strong case for funding more writing classes in schools.
