By Jed Rubenfeld, a great read, by the way.
But I only want to share one particularly wonderful sentence with you. At one point, a Washington blowhard gives a press conference to New York reporters. After a statement featuring convoluted logic and tortured syntax, the writer offers that:
"Pencils hung frozen in midair as comprehension sought in vain to work its way through this declaration."
That's a good one, it is.
