    The Quarterly Review of Doublespeak

    The Minnesota Board of Education voted to consider requiring all students to do some "volunteer work" as a prerequisite to high school graduation.

    Senator Orrin Hatch said that "capital punishment is our society's recognition of the sanctity of human life."

    According to the tax bill signed by President Reagan on December 22, 1987, Don Tyson and his sister-in-law Barbara run a "family farm." Their "farm" has 25,000 employees and grosses $1.7 billion a year. But as a "family farm" they get tax breaks that save them $135 million a year.

    Scott L. Pickard, spokesperson for the Massachusetts Department of Public Works, calls them "ground-mounted confirmatory route markers." You probably call them road signs, but then you don't work in a government agency.

    It's not "elderly" or "senior citizens" anymore. Now it's "chronologically experienced citizens."

    According to the FAA, the propeller blade didn't break off, it was just a case of "uncontained blade liberation."
    they used to print a newsletter every 3 months with such stuff in it. i like "uncontained blade liberation" the best.
