Do Inadequate Writing Skills Engender Bad Coding?

Coder and literary editor Bernard Meisler seems to think so, according to his piece in The Atlantic Monthly:

He argues that a greater emphasis on literacy will result in better software -- that, to excel at coding and design, a software programmer must first master the art of writing lucid prose.
