Somewhere in my bookcase a slim, battered copy of The Elements of Style stands — neglected — sandwiched between volumes both larger and less wise.

For some years I had an accord with the authors of this slender volume. And then I happened upon Rule 17… Omit Needless Words.

We haven’t had much of a relationship since, Messrs. Strunk, White and I.
