[ #5288 ]
Dear Log,

«Using 10 words when one will do will be anathema in the new Italy of brevity, simplicity and clarity. A taskforce of three linguists, three judges and an internet expert will oversee the revolution[...]

"But it will not be easy to convince two million civil servants to change mentality and habits [...]. The idea of changing the way they write documents frightens them." »

--"Italian bureaucrats told to cut the Kafka"

Of course, it's all very easy to have a larf at the Italians, but they're merely novices at the word-game that I think of US governments and corporations as being experts at. Yow! Have I prioritized my action items yet?
