ABSTRACT
This article expresses concerns about the shortage of masterful writing skill in the United States. Just when the need for masterful writing skill (not just competence) is greatest because many pressures are driving people and institutions apart, the scarcity of it is increasing. And even mere competence is hard to find. At the same time, studies show that the ability to receive communication is also deteriorating as the ability to read erodes. That's in addition to decreasing receptivity to communication. As a minimum, every management needs the services of at least one master of the English language, who can write major materials, screen and edit the materials written by others, and provide both input and review for the organization's ideas and the expression of them.
