MUCH MORE OF A DISCIPLINED MIND.  Do you write e-mails with a late middle school vocabulary?
When nearly 25,000 of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin's e-mails were released last week, we all were given a (much anticipated) look not only at what she was writing, but how she was writing.

AOL brought in two writing analysts to individually assess the level at which the e-mails were being composed.  What they found was impressive.  Palin's writing skills appeared to reach an eighth grade level — a score, the analysis explained, that is excellent for a chief executive.
Interesting recession, in which the legacy media are able to devote so much attention to a travel show hostess's electronic mail.
