Acrostic


Acrostic: When the first letters of successive lines are arranged either in alphabetical order (= abecedarian) or in such a way as to spell a word.

Too many ideas are floated in public without appropriate forethought.

Reckless assertion-making makes the future even more uncertain.

Useless information fogs and obscures the rhetorical landscape.

Time and time again I waste time rummaging for facts in the media clutter.

How many crazy, nutty, silly ways can

truth

be moved from the

center

to the

margin?
