A picture can tell a story, but decent words help

I feel I have to write in response to the letter you published two weeks ago (‘Image library jobs can be tedious, but they’re great assets’, DW 27 March),

However, I can’t really comment on Christopher Sims’ letter without sounding like a grumpy old man. I think I know what he is trying to say, and he obviously says it with passion, but not in a language I fully understand.

I’m trying to work out if publishing his letter without previously editing it for grammar, sense and syntax was standard Design Week editorial policy or a deliberate Postmodern comment on literacy among the visually creative community.
