    After Richard M.’s good word to the Forthright Mag staff earlier (today? — it’s been a long week), methinks going for quicker, smaller, shorter posts is often a good thing. (This after I just bled out 750 words on my Journey entry over on my blog.) The attention span of this generation can’t even abide 15 minutes of fame or a day’s attention to Marco Rubio’s swig of bottled water. Not to say that longer treatises are passé, but the more we can get to the point, and make our point cogently, concisely, and powerfully, the more audience we may gain. What say you?

      Let’s see. The younger generation dictates the clothes we wear, because, I suppose, we don’t want to hurt their feelings; so they show up at the worship of the Creator of us and everything exists looking like something the cat wouldn’t drag up. The quality of written English has fallen like a rock in the last twenty or thirty years. There is virtually no rules any more for English grammar. Ever since “the Peanut Farmer” decided that we needed to dumb-down government writing, the intelligence level has fallen, and we are rapidly moving toward everything going down to the lowest common denominator.

      And, one-sentence paragraphs are the pits!!

      What was the quote from the Bard? Oh, yeah. “Brevity is the soul of wit.” Of course, he never applied it to himself. Still, there is something to say for cogent writing. It requires organization and focus. Maybe I’m saying too much.

      One thing I’ve noticed also: I tend to share a thought more when it’s just a paragraph.
