This, my dears, is what passes for discourse on a so-called news program in the early twenty-first century:
My concern has been the atrocities there in Darfur and the relevance to me with that issue as we spoke about Africa and some of the countries there that were kind of the people succumbing to the dictators and the corruption of some collapsed governments on the continent, the relevance was Alaska’s investment in Darfur with some of our permanent fund dollars.
Now let's see if yours truly, writer and teacher of writing, can cut the clutter and find a sentence in that welter of words:
I am concerned with the atrocities in Darfur, and their effect on Alaska's financial investment in that country.
Ah ha! I now qualify to run for President. The pen is mighty!
