But you can affect it, question it, talk about it. It's good for a company
to have its' style questioned. Perhaps you won't be able to change it, but
let your editors, managers, and fellow writers know your comments and
questions. We all need to "think" and "rethink" our company styles, lest we
fall into the pit of mediocrity through unwillingness to change.
