A literary critique

Letter to Jomo is a socio-politico-cultural mine of information which I recommend for aficionados of literary writing, and serious journalists who can learn from a style that takes their profession away from the mundane to a higher plane.

Many more will find pleasure in reading the letters for the beauty of language and matter in them as well as the accuracy of information that they provide. Generations to come will find them readable, enjoyable and a repository of information on Ghanaian social history.

We must hand it to smart people without a fuss whatsoever, Jomo, if for no other reason than their resolute determination to stay ahead of the rest of us all the time.

There is a snag they must contend with though: Every adjective has a comparative and superlative and there will always be people smarter than the smart who in turn, must contend with the smartest around:
