US: A Nation Big on Words . . .

Commentary by Dr. Don Newbury.
 
We Americans are a wordy bunch, particularly after election to public office. At all levels of government, officials gain experience quickly in “proclaiming,” whether or not they’re any good at all in framing laws. Proclamations often are stacked on top of days, weeks and months already taken. No matter. Most of the thousands of documents are so issued to satisfy special interest groups. (All could be significantly shortened with lessened use of the word “whereas.”…)
