A Busy News Day Calls For Time Economy And Word Efficiency

Lessons from the Inauguration for those among us who tend to speak like no other human beings on earth do ("was involved in the altercation..," "no cause for the fire has been released..," "the alleged perpetrator attempted to flee on foot..," etc) and take the liberty of expanding their time on the air to their perceived importance:

1. It only takes 39 words to swear in a President.
2. "Small words say well." - Winston Churchill

Need I say more?
