    Dear Alan,
    I actually thought this was free comedy writing material that you were promoting on linkedin! If you go to my profile page on linkedin you will see among seven other blogs How to write an article. I am not a novice to writing having written tons of stuff including a lot of comedy. Please read it for free!

    Have a good Shabbos!

    All the best,

    Chawnaw Hershel Kahn
