Little Richard

Richard Howell isnt rich. How do I know? He lacks capital.

Uppercase letters pepper this excerpt, yet Richard begins with a lowercase r. That wasnt a capital idea. Id be hard-pressed to believe Mr. Howell spells his first name with a lowercase letter, a la singer k.d. lang, poet bill bissett and other assorted rebels.

The capital R kept a rockin, but it couldnt come in. Thats a shame, because Mr. Howell is no “little Richard. He may not be renowned, but hes still a proper noun. Show him some respect, with a capital R.

A-wop bop-a loo mop a-lop bam boom!
