No one is two busy too study grammar when its fun

——

Greetings,

—–

Would you please examine an idea for helping ordinary people become better writers?

—–

I need to find short story writers who will write or change some of their stories into grammar puzzles and publish them in a newspaper, a magazine, or in booklets similar to the Sudoku booklets that are sold in the checkout lanes of almost every grocery store in America.  The following instructions will explain how to quickly change a short story into a grammar puzzle.  I assume that a local newspaper will agree to publish the grammar puzzles as an experiment.  If the experiment is successful, other newspapers and magazines will be eager to pay for the right to publish them.  For the experiment, one grammar puzzle should be published every day for one week or two weeks.  After that, one grammar puzzle would be published every week on Friday in the paper and on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on its website.  But if a writer wants to publish four to five short stories in booklets and sell them in local stores or over the internet, I think the money for publishing hundreds or even thousands of booklets could be raised over the internet.  After all, this would give many people to become part of the history of education.  And I assume that when the booklets are sold, the money could be kept as income by the writer.  For extra fun, a small grammar puzzle has been included at the bottom of this page.  It explains how reporters can be forced by Congress to change the balance of power between voters and politicians.  

—–  

Every short story/grammar puzzle will have five sections.  But none of the sections will have any capitalization, punctuation, or paragraphs.  Correcting these mistakes will be enjoyable because they will be so easy to do.  In fact, everyone should be able to make corrections in the first section while they are reading.  Which could make them feel really smart and inspire them to do the more difficult sections.  However, the first section will also force people to look at words and sentences more carefully than they normally do.  That is the kind of studying that real writers do when they edit their work.  And when someone has learned how to edit his own work, he has also learned how to write. 

—— 

The second section will also have some words and/or phrases misplaced.  With grammar puzzles that are published in a newspaper, there should be only three to five words and/or phrases that are misplaced.  The number of misplacements should be disclosed at the beginning of the section so people will be able to know if they found all of the errors.  Then when a reader finds the final misplacement, he might have a small but still very enjoyable cerebral orgasm.  And with only three to five errors, most people will be able to find all of the errors without being forced to keep a ledger for the errors they find while solving the grammar puzzle.  This will make reading the puzzles much more enjoyable.  The number of misplacements could be larger in magazines and booklets because people will be more willing to spend time solving the puzzle.  With a newspaper puzzle, they will want to quickly read the story and solve the puzzle at the same time.  Thereupon they will be more likely to read the next grammar puzzle in their favorite newspaper or magazine.  A balanced mixture of good and bad sentences might actually stimulate readers to be more alert because they won’t always believe their eyes when they find a sentence with no errors.  Either way, this section will make the grammar puzzles more enjoyable to solve.  And when it’s fun to learn, people will spend both a lot of time and money so they can work hard at learning. 

—–

The third section won’t have any misplaced words and phrases but some sentences will be misplaced.  These intentional errors in the second and third sections are essential because the learning curve is never complete until people go through a phase of making mistakes.  Conventional writing lessons that use examples of good writing seem to only produce temporary connections in people’s brains that eventually fail when they relax.  Making and correcting mistakes, on the other hand, is more shocking and apparently produces more durable connections.  Yes, people will learn more from correcting their own mistakes.  But they may make the same mistake a thousand times before they realize they are making a mistake.  Therefore they need to use the first four sections so they can learn faster with someone else’s mistakes.  Of course, both the second and third sections will more enjoyable if the first word of every sentence is never misplaced.  That will give the readers a very helpful clue for correcting someone else’s mistakes. 

—- 

The fourth section won’t have any misplaced words or sentences but it will still be the most important section because most of its sentences will have to be completely rewritten.  These mistakes shouldn’t be hard to create because they could come from the short story’s first draft.  But most readers won’t be able to make instantaneous corrections while they are reading.  So they will have to write the second draft by themselves.  And maybe a third draft.  And a fourth draft.  Consequently they should learn more from this section than any other section.  Moreover, these grammar puzzles could serve as an experiment for how schools should teach grammar and writing skills.  Teachers could even develop their own inventory of grammar puzzles by collecting samples of bad writing from their students.  Those errors will usually be the kind of errors that their students make and they could be more age appropriate than what is produced by textbooks publishers.  And students will like the grammar puzzles because all of their homework can be done in the classroom.  More important though, they won’t have to worry about having a writer’s block because they don’t feel like writing.  Then by enabling teachers to make their writing classes more enjoyable, students will be inspired to show their teachers more respect and deference.  

—- 

The fifth section will be just the dialogue for the short story’s denouement.  This will change the final section into a happy ending for most people because they won’t have to do any work.  Instead of writing and rewriting and rewriting prose for the dialogue, they will just read the words and dream about becoming a great writer and making millions of dollars from writing a novel.  Or a movie script.  True, this will almost never happen.  But as part time students of grammar and writing, they will become loyal fans of short stories and enjoy buying the next newspaper edition of a grammar puzzle or a grammar puzzle booklet. 

—— 

As for the booklets, a typical booklet will have three to five short stories.  Or it could have three to five chapters for a short novel.  The stories will be printed in two versions.  The first page will show the story title and the author’s name.  Then the puzzle version for the first story or first chapter will be put on pages 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, and 26.  And the third page will display a picture or drawing similar to the pictures or drawings on book covers.  Then the actual story with no errors will be printed on pages 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, and 28/29.  So when a reader makes all of the corrections on an even numbered page, he can flip over the adjacent page and look at the actual story printed on the designated odd numbered page.  The first four sections of the puzzle will be three pages apiece but the fifth section will be a one page movie script and it will be printed on the twenty-sixth page.  Then the prose version for the script will be on the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth pages.  After the last puzzle, there will be some advice about grammar and writing skills.  To make the booklets for children more enjoyable, the puzzles should be printed right side up and the actual stories should be printed upside down.  Children will enjoy learning how to read upside down because it will improve their spelling. 

——

(In the future, newspapers and publishers will create software that enables writers to make their stories fit inside a five inch by eleven inch section of a newspaper or the five inch by seven inch pages of a booklet.  Those dimensions are only guesses.  The software for newspapers will prohibit sentences in puzzles that start in one section and finish in another.  The software for booklets will prohibit paragraphs in the final draft that start in one section and finish in another.  The newspapers and publishers will also want to guarantee that the puzzles are not too hard or too easy.  So they will ask writers to only submit a final draft and some of their early drafts for the fourth section.  Then they will make the necessary changes.) 

——-

As for publishing short story/grammar puzzles in a newspaper, most of them should be very eager to do it because so many of them have gone bankrupt.  And small newspapers might be able to use grammar puzzles to help them publish weekly booklets similar to Reader’s Digest.  They will write their local stories every week via the internet on a large newspaper’s computers.  Then the large newspaper will write news articles about state, national, and international events that will also be printed in the booklets.  They will also mail the booklets.  And because people love both good stories and puzzles that are not too hard to solve, the demand curve could be increased by including grammar puzzles.  A prolific writer might be able to make a career for himself by writing a series of weekly grammar puzzles similar to a television show with the same characters every week.  And some publishing companies may even pay to have a scene from a novel printed as a grammar puzzle so they can promote the novel. 

—-

Large daily newspapers like the New York Times might be able to also increase their profits from publishing long form journalism by enabling their subscribers to buy print on demand books filled with newspaper articles that their subscribers saved because they thought the stories were invaluable.   And medium sized daily newspapers might be able to improve their financial situation by publishing a semi-random sample of classified ads for cars, houses, and miscellaneous items.   Cars and houses are the two biggest purchases that most people make and periodically looking at the sample in the left upper corner of the second page would help them monitor both prices and product options.  And every time they look at a sample, they are going to be stimulated to look at other advertisements in the newspaper.  Indeed, they will be subconsciously stimulated to look at advertising even on the days they don’t glance at the sample.  Which will make advertising in newspapers a much more effective business strategy.  Moreover, the samples will create a demand curve for consumer information about many different kinds of products.  Thereupon every newspaper can have another supply curve that satisfies the demand curve they made.

senator mitch mcconnell would you please examine an idea for rebuilding the republican party by making voters both better educated and more demanding first an annual one week town hall meeting for an entire country must be created with a new paid vacation day for government employees or with a rescheduled presidents day that will always be celebrated on the monday closest to our average rate of taxation 29 6 april 19 for 2021 this new or improved holiday will make most taxpayers madder than an unregulated firecracker but their anger will create an annual surge in demand for financial information about our federal state and local governments which should make it very profitable for the news media to supply a one week series of audits and analyses during the week of the holiday just like the annual surges in supply and demand for firecrackers with the 4th of july turkeys with thanksgiving toys with christmas nothing with presidents day and flags with memorial day and the demand curve for audits and analyses could also be increased by every newspaper and television station creating a whistle blower of the year award for their respective market niches second every state must be required to reschedule their caucuses and primary elections for the presidency and congress so they occur at least two weeks after the taxpayers holiday this should increase the turnout of voters who want to cut government spending which will give republicans an advantage in every election especially if the democrats are foolish enough to oppose this proposal for draining the swamp in washington d c they will probably say that we already have a freedom day for white people on the 4th of july and a freedom day for black people on juneteenth so we don’t need a freedom day for taxpayers nonetheless the rescheduled caucuses and primaries should make it very profitable six months later for the news media to publish a one weekend review of federal state and local government budgets right before people vote in november that will enable the one week and one weekend reviews to work like the report cards that teachers use for communicating with parents then the voters can punish their politicians like children who have gotten too many bad report cards in a row can you imagine how the voters would have reacted to the budget deficits and national debt if a taxpayers holiday had been enacted fifty years ago the never ending repetition of bad grades would have stimulated the voters to tell their congressmen and senators to either balance their budgets or term limit themselves

third every newspaper should use day one of the annual week one review of our de facto social contract to publish their best divide and conquer journalism with this business strategy the largest newspaper in every state will publish an comprehensive one day annual report on its senior senator to washington d c and his most important committee assignment then the second largest newspaper will publish an annual comprehensive one day report on its junior senator to washington d c and his committee assignment most important and in every congressional district the largest newspaper that is investigating a not senator will publish an annual comprehensive one day report on its congressman and his most important committee assignment as for the newspapers that are not investigating a federal legislator they can publish a one day report on the state senators in their respective market niches this will enable weekly newspapers to participate in our country reforming then with divide and conquer the investigative journalism some voters will be inspired by either their egos or their sense of patriotism to become expert voters on one aspect of our government  and the best way to reform our government of the people, etc, etc is to create large blocs of expert swing voters in the districts and states of every congressman and senator for the example federal tax code there have been many news reports on the tax code since the 1986 reforms by ronald reagan and everyone knew that the tax code was being repeatedly corrupted by lobbyists and special interest groups but the voters did never anything to stop congress from creating new tax deductions for anyone with enough money for many large campaign contributions so all of the hard work by many reporters was an almost complete waste of time their only accomplishment was the positive money they earned from entertaining both voters and politicians with gotchas which is the why reporters failed to communicate they were entertaining their customers instead of educating voters but the divide and conquer investigative journalism will neutralize the power of lobbyists and special interest groups in the same way that bridge to the nowhere was defeated the bridge was already approved by congress when a single sound bite in a national magazine forced nearly every congressman and senator to vote against it their constituents were so angry that they had to defy a powerful senator and pet his cancel project well the divide and conquer journalism will do that every year with the expert swing voters they will be so angry at the corruption in tax the code that every congressman and senator on the committees responsible for the tax code will have to line up in circular firing squads and shoot at the lobbyists and special interest groups supporting another congressman and or senator even regulators who have been captured by special interest groups will feel pressure to more regulate those groups the congressmen and senators who supervise the regulators will insist that the regulators do not let the groups do anything that embarrass the will congressmen and senators

fourth every newspaper should republish their annual one week reviews as ebooks or print on demand paperback books Then the voters could buy an annual textbook about their government of the people etc etc The largest newspapers could maximize their profits by including reviews for the previous years best books and documentaries Reading a review can make a normal person feel like he is an expert And reading fifty or a hundred reviews for the most important books and documentaries of the past year will make many people feel like they must become a statesman A fantasy they will want to nurture secretly by reading more newspapers The documentaries that are accessible for online viewing will be especially effective at inspiring such fantasies because it will only take a single impulse to get people to watch them Medium to small sized newspapers could maximize the demand for their annual textbooks by including the prices and addresses for all of the residential real estate sold in the past year If the data is presented in an user friendly format the medium sized newspapers could make enough money to pay for another reporter Of course some local governments may need a little bit of persuasion or coercion to supply the information in the proper format Fifth it will be both cheaper and more effective to reschedule presidents day as a taxpayers holiday instead of creating a new paid vacation day for government employees A rescheduled presidents day should enable newspapers to use one day of their seven days of audits and analyses to publish simulated newspaper articles from one hundred two hundred, three hundred and four hundred years ago during their one week review of events and conditions While this may not sound impressive these history lessons will be subconscious reminders to voters that future generations will be reading about them This should make everyone much more serious about their responsibilities as a voter And children could be stimulated to study american history if the annual textbooks always included a ten page chronology of american and world history This information could be used for survey questions about both current events and american history The survey results then would be published every year in the textbooks And people will become embarrassed at how ignorant the average american is about american history They wont be as embarrassed by the survey results for current events because that information is constantly changing  But they will want to avoid being privately ashamed of their ignorance by periodically studying the ten page chronology Which will have a positive effect on children when they see their parents studying american history As for the morality of rescheduling a holiday meant for honoring our presidents i think george washington would approve of celebrating on a holiday that is dedicated to fighting for freedom with ballots instead of bullets sixth any changes in our taxes or economy would be handled by scheduling each holiday twenty years into the future based on a twenty year moving average Therefore the holiday for 2041 could be scheduled with the average tax rate from 2001 to 2021 The holidays for 2022 to 2040 would be based on the same rate And the holiday for 2042 would be based on the average tax rate for 2002 to 2022 And the holiday for 2043 on the average rate for 2003 to 2023 This procedure would make it easier for people and businesses to plan for the holiday stanley krauter lincoln ne

P.S.  Unfortunately, persuading reporters to communicate more effectively with a Taxpayers Holiday is going to be even more difficult than persuading politicians to line up in circular firing squads.  Every reporter seems to think that their time is too valuable to be wasted on the intellectual weaknesses of their customers.  And they obviously don’t care that they have accomplished nothing with their repetitive reports on the federal income tax code.   They must believe that changing their work schedule to get some improvement in voter education would be a gross violation of their code of ethics.   That is why none of my letters and emails in the past thirty years have had any effect.  Even my advertisements in a local newspaper were ignored by the newspaper’s reporters and editors.  In my opinion, reporters will ignore any evidence showing that they are failing to communicate.  They will always blame someone else for the political corruption that is being enabled by their business strategy of communicating like entertainers instead of teachers.  Almost all of the books I have found about voter ignorance have been written by political scientists, not journalists.  So it is not surprising that reporters don’t care that news media surveys have shown repeatedly that the majority of Americans are too ignorant to vote intelligently.  Or that the ignorance has made campaign advertisements more important than news media reports for winning elections.  Or that they have accomplished nothing with their reports on budget deficits.  And unfunded entitlements.  And the infant mortality rate.  And infrastructure repair.  And the depletion of drinkable water.  And too big to prosecute white collar criminals.  And the student loan crisis.  Yes, someone must do what reporters do.  However, making voters better educated and more demanding is apparently not important to reporters because they are too busy writing the first draft of history.  So they are doing nothing wrong by changing essential information into white noise with their daily doses of horserace journalism.  Which is why I have stopped trying to persuade reporters that they can work smarter without working harder.  Hopefully you will be able to convince them to change the balance of power between voters and politicians by making the voters more demanding with an annual town hall meeting.  The unintended consequence of making journalism both more profitable and more respectable will only be a minor fringe benefit.

Would you please examine an idea for rebuilding the Republican Party by making voters both better educated and more demanding?

——

First, an annual one week town hall meeting for an entire country must be created with a new paid vacation day for government employees — or with a rescheduled Presidents Day —  that will always be celebrated on the Monday closest to our average rate of taxation.  (29.6% = April 19 for 2021)  This new or improved holiday will make most taxpayers madder than an unregulated firecracker.  But their anger will create an annual surge in demand for financial information about our federal, state, and local governments.  Which should make it very profitable for the news media to supply a one week series of audits and analyses during the week of the holiday.  Just like the annual surges in supply and demand for firecrackers with the 4th of July, turkeys with Thanksgiving, toys with Christmas, nothing with Presidents Day, and flags with Memorial Day.  And the demand curve for audits and analyses could also be increased by every newspaper and television station creating a Whistle Blower of the Year Award for their respective market niches.

——

Second, every state must be required to reschedule their caucuses and primary elections for the Presidency and Congress so they occur at least two weeks after the Taxpayers Holiday.  This should increase the turnout of voters who want to cut government spending.  Which will give Republicans an advantage in every election.  Especially if the Democrats are foolish enough to oppose this proposal for draining the swamp in Washington, D.C.  They will probably say that we already have a Freedom Day for white people on the 4th of July and a Freedom Day for black people on Juneteenth.  So we don’t need a Freedom Day for taxpayers.  Nonetheless, the rescheduled caucuses and primaries should make it very profitable six months later for the news media to publish a one weekend review of federal, state, and local government budgets right before people vote in November.  That will enable the one week reviews and the one weekend reviews to work like the report cards that teachers use for communicating with parents.  Then the voters can punish their politicians like children who have gotten too many bad report cards in a row.  Can you imagine how the voters would have reacted to the budget deficits and national debt if a Taxpayers Holiday had been enacted fifty years ago?  The never ending repetition of bad grades would have stimulated the voters to tell their Congressmen and Senators to either balance their budgets or term limit themselves.

-–—

Third, every newspaper should use one day of the annual one week review of our de facto social contract to publish their best divide and conquer journalism.  With this business strategy, the largest newspaper in every state will publish an annual comprehensive one day report on its senior Senator to Washington, D.C. and his most important committee assignment.  Then the second largest newspaper will publish an annual comprehensive one day report on its junior Senator to Washington, D.C. and his most important committee assignment.  And in every Congressional District, the largest newspaper that is not investigating a Senator will publish an annual comprehensive one day report on its Congressman and his most important committee assignment.  (As for the newspapers that are not investigating a federal legislator, they can publish a one day report on the state Senators in their respective market niches.  This will enable weekly newspapers to participate in reforming our country.)  Then with the divide and conquer investigative journalism, some voters will be inspired by either their egos or their sense of patriotism to become expert voters on one aspect of our government.  And the best way to reform our government of the people, etc, etc is to create large blocs of expert swing voters in the districts and states of every Congressman and Senator.   

——  

For example, the federal tax code.  There have been many news reports on the tax code since the 1986 reforms by Ronald Reagan and everyone knew that the tax code was being repeatedly corrupted by lobbyists and special interest groups.  But the voters never did anything to stop Congress from creating new tax deductions for anyone with enough money for many large campaign contributions.  So all of the hard work by many reporters was an almost complete waste of time.  Their only positive accomplishment was the money they earned from entertaining both voters and politicians with gotchas.  Which is why the reporters failed to communicate.  They were entertaining their customers instead of educating voters.  But the divide and conquer investigative journalism will neutralize the power of lobbyists and special interest groups in the same way that the bridge to nowhere was defeated.

——

The bridge was already approved by Congress when a single sound bite in a national magazine forced nearly every Congressman and Senator to vote against it.  Their constituents were so angry that they had to defy a powerful Senator and cancel his pet project.  Well, the divide and conquer journalism will do that every year with the expert swing voters.  They will be so angry at the corruption in the tax code that every Congressman and Senator on the committees responsible for the tax code will have to line up in circular firing squads and shoot at the lobbyists and special interest groups supporting another Congressman and/or Senator.  Even regulators who have been captured by special interest groups will feel more pressure to regulate those groups.  The Congressmen and Senators who supervise the regulators will insist that the regulators do not let the groups do anything that will embarrass the Congressmen and Senators.

——

Fourth, every newspaper should republish their annual one week reviews as ebooks or print on demand paperback books.  Then the voters could buy an annual textbook about their government of the people, etc, etc.  The largest newspapers could maximize their profits by including reviews for the previous year’s best books and documentaries.  Reading a review can make a normal person feel like he is an expert.  And reading fifty or a hundred reviews for the most important books and documentaries of the past year will make many people feel like they must become a statesman.  A fantasy they will want to nurture secretly by reading more newspapers.  (The documentaries that are accessible for online viewing will be especially effective at inspiring such fantasies because it will only take a single impulse to get people to watch them.)  Medium to small sized newspapers could maximize the demand for their annual textbooks by including the prices and addresses for all of the residential real estate sold in the past year.  If the data is presented in an user friendly format, the medium sized newspapers could make enough money to pay for another reporter.  Of course, some local governments may need a little bit of persuasion or coercion to supply the information in the proper format.    

—–

Fifth, it will be both cheaper and more effective to reschedule Presidents Day as a Taxpayers Holiday instead of creating a new paid vacation day for government employees.  A rescheduled Presidents Day should enable newspapers to use one day of their seven days of audits and analyses to publish simulated newspaper articles from one hundred, two hundred, three hundred, and four hundred years ago during their one week review of events and conditions.  While this may not sound impressive, these history lessons will be subconscious reminders to voters that future generations will be reading about them.  This should make everyone much more serious about their responsibilities as a voter.  And children could be stimulated to study American History if the annual textbooks always included a ten page chronology of American and World History.  This information could be used for survey questions about both current events and American History.  The survey results then would be published every year in the textbooks.  And people will become embarrassed at how ignorant the average American is about American History.  They won’t be as embarrassed by the survey results for current events because that information is constantly changing.   But they will want to avoid being privately ashamed of their ignorance by periodically studying the ten page chronology.  Which will have a positive effect on children when they see their parents studying American History.  As for the morality of rescheduling a holiday meant for honoring our Presidents, I think George Washington would approve of celebrating on a holiday that is dedicated to fighting for freedom with ballots instead of bullets. 

—–

Sixth, any changes in our taxes or economy would be handled by scheduling each holiday twenty years into the future based on a twenty year moving average.  Therefore the holiday for 2041 could be scheduled with the average tax rate from 2001 to 2021.  (The holidays for 2022 to 2040 would be based on the same rate.)  And the holiday for 2042 would be based on the average tax rate for 2002 to 2022.  And the holiday for 2043 on the average rate for 2003 to 2023.  This procedure would make it easier for people and businesses to plan for the holiday.
