Voila, not wallah

Letter from Dick Conway

Dictionary – December 2001 – Colorado Central Magazine

Dear Colorado Central,

Well, Columbine may be a young squirt, but it seems that the cosmopolitan editors would know that “wallah” is really spelled “voila.”

I’m one of your distant readers, having retired to Port Townsend, Washington, from Lamar. Phil Doe sent me a gift sub and he keeps renewing it. If he ever stops, I’ll send my own money. I miss Colorado and I love reading about Salida and things we don’t have here, such as snowstorms. Your description of last spring’s blizzard brought it all to life.
