    Have to disagree with the esteemed Mr. Jefferson. Is he advocating Twitterspeak? Isn’t the ability to craft a coherent English sentence a laudable attribute? I’d say that a flair with the language is one reason we can appreciate listening to a British speaker, even a politician.

    While brevity might be the proverbial soul of wit, I can’t agree that using a paucity of verbiage is always an asset.

    Nicely said, old chap!

    I think he enjoyed good oration, Art. I’m betting this was said more towards some show off(s), who tended to suffer from . . . diarrhea of the mouth!

    Ah, the dreaded “logorrhea”. I’ll buy that explanation.
