On word usage

Dear Editor,

Having lost my cool sufficiently over the electronic media placing an “r” in potable, as in water, I was pleased to see that the chairman of Water and Sewerage and the administrator of Cat Island were to speak about potable water for Cat Island.

So, you can imagine my frustration when both spoke of “portable” water for Cat Island. Please everybody, drop the “r”!
