Today we spell How with a "W". Can you say Sensationalize! The WOW factor!

Rights and restrictions are tangentially functional to a healthy society. We may disagree on the point at which restrictions should limit the sphere of personal freedoms, but we can all agree that personal dignity for fellow human beings is categorically Kantian in origin.

Writers are told to think for the six honest serving-men - who, what, when, where, how and why. It is a good idea to begin a writing project by thinking of an essay subject or story that will be suitable for a storyboard to follow. Most journalists are taught not to look for the Six Ws, who, what, when, where, how and why, but to look first for "W", "Wher", "Where", "When"Why". However, that is close enough for most journalism, but that is also close enough to make an honest serving-man out of any story.

From The Book of The Elephant, by Rudyard Kipling.

'The Servant had an eagle eye, an elephant trunk and a horse's hoof.' From the Book of The Elephant, by Rudyard Kiplings. (I can find no evidence that this is the actual version of this poem; this is merely an example of the type of storyboard we use today) From the Book of The Elephant, by Rudyard Kiplings.
