Jim asked if slanting meant changing the message. The answer is a loud no. Slanting means to shift the writing for those who read that magazine. My values remained the same. In that instance, instead of directing my article to parents I edited it slightly and aimed it at adults.
(Twila tried hard to think of a humorous slant to Cec's new post, but the subject was much too serious. At least I can pop up and say hi, she thought. "Hi, everybody!")
