Matt --
I think that the quote you are referencing comes from _The Elements of
Style_, and was penned by EB White:

"No one can write decently who is distrustful of the readers intelligence,
or whose attitude is patronizing."

Unfortunately, by posting this I may seem to be distrustful and
patronizing. Ironic, eh?
