Kevin De Ornellas writes, "I should think that most of us (if we had the
time) would be able to paraphrase that passage with considerable ease. I
think that it is a rather lucid set of sentences."

OK: Lucid?  Did you really say *L-U-C-I-D*?  Hell, it wasn't even
pellucid.  It was murkier than the Thames at low tide with twelve tug
boats towing rafts of socio-psycho-babbling geese to market.

Why do some of our colleagues assume that 'clarity' in language is a
free-floating, essential and transhistorical quality? By and large it
consists of  a number of tricks of style validated for the purpose by
particular social groupings at specific times. Its avid pursuit is
usually the last resort of fools and scoundrels.
