I might be missing something here. I could not care less
about the legalistic phraseology; but the important point is that the
first thing stated is the reason for the change, and then comes the
proposal; I would strongly recommend that we do not divorce the two.
Som if you are mewrely talking abuot psuedo legalese, fine,
but the underlying principle of keeping the reationale with the
proposed changes, I would tend to oppose separation.
It is by the fortune of God that, in this country, we have three
benefits: freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and the wisdom never
to use either. Mark Twain
