Crisp Cables

Wikileaks. I’m still crunching through, digesting, reflecting, and deciding, so am not ready to make any major pronouncements. (I know—the world waits with bated breath.)

This news jumps out at me, though: India’s diplomatic leadership finds the cables to be so well-written that they are encouraging their rank and file to regard them as examples “crisp” diplomatic cable writing. In an age of declining literacy and much moaning over the twitterization of written English, our consular corps should be proud.
