    You know Steve, I often bypass those terms whenever I read. Mostly because it seems politik speak and overused to the point of irrelevence.

    It is nice to know that I was correct all along.
    They are irrelevent and a lazy man's way to avoid specifics.

    Humor is a great tool of learning.

    Seems very appropriate for me to put this link here.

    What I learned about propaganda, rhetoric, and the English (and Russian) language came from that essay.

    I practically know it by heart.

    I, for one, without a doubt, am guilty by association to the vagaries of loquacious meanderings, concerning, and by examining previous prose of my undertaking, in periods of past productivity in certain areas of communications.

    Or to say it in more simple terms: I too am guilty of using poor writing skills due to laziness.

    Another great link in my education.
    Another link to put in my Favorites!
    Thank you both!

    What is great about the essay (yes, I CAN go on and on about it :)) is that how true it is what he says back in 1946 to the issues now.
