And The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen

From an open letter to wannabe "gangstas"...

[The word is] "never." Write it as "never." If you must, write it as "nevah" But it is not "neva." "Neva" has a long e sound. I know this because it's my first name. I've spent most of my life educating people on its long e. In your exploration of thuggy goodness that you seem to think lies within your surburban bad-ass soul, you darken my identity. For that, you don't get a cookie.
