Hey, why would we care about a little thing like the party's platform in a
decision like this? Works for me to have no platform.

I love it.  Eco-feminists (whatever the heck that is) and crazies are exactly
what I look for to lead the free world.

Ahh, those *** corporations.  I guess that I just don't get it, but I've
personally founded 5 businesses, and I've provided seed financing to a dozen
others.  All corporations.  And all those people for whom we created jobs don't
think we are evil.  Weird thing, isn't it?  Maybe some day I'll figure it out.

Now Ravi, if you don't have something to say about this, I will be sorely
disappointed!

"EuroEnglish"

The European Union commissioners have announced that an agreement
has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for
European communications, rather than German, which was the other
possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that
English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a
five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro
for short).

In the first year, 's' will be used instead of the soft 'c'.
Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also,
the hard 'c' will be replaced with 'k.' Not only will this klear up
konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when
the troublesome 'ph' will be replaced by 'f'. This will make words
like 'fotograf' 20 per sent shorter. In the third year, publik
akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage
where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will
enkourage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a
deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes
of silent 'e's in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as
replasing 'th' by 'z' and 'w' by 'v'.

During ze fifz year, ze unesesary 'o' kan be dropd from vords
kontaining 'ou', and similar changes vud of kors; be aplid to ozer
kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil b
no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu
understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil finali kum tru.

Although the story you tell was written in original form over 100 years
ago, by Mark Twain as tongue-in-cheek suggestions on improving the English
language.
