    Um. Don’t you mean “Redress”?

      @ribex: Nope. Readdress fits better.

      Redress means to remedy or set right.

      • ribex says:

        @zigziggityzoo: Readdress only makes sense if the gripes were already addressed.

        If I have a gripe (a complaint), then I damn well would want them remedied or set right!

        Google “redress complaints” vs “readdress complaints” and you will see that the proper verbiage here is redress.

          @ribex: I thought they meant literally “re-address,” as in, “If you are writing an EECB and want to include the CEO, the old CEO won’t be working there anymore.”

    Ack, I’m confused.

    I was taking “Walmart will have a new CEO, Mike Duke, starting Feb. 1” to mean that Duke will be able to solve consumers’ problems with Walmart (redress). But is the title saying hey, a new guy is coming, time to write to him (readdress)?

    Soon to be known as “Walmart (Formerly Mike Duke’s House of Chicken and Waffles).”
