Lewis B. Smedes

I'm not aware of a cadence when writing, but I hear it after. I write in longhand, and that helps. You're closer to it, and you have to cross things out. You put a line through it, but it's still there. You might need it. When you erase a line on a computer, it's gone forever.
The margins don't get erased by simply insisting that the powers-that-be erase them.
