Brevity – Is it still around ?

My liege, and madam,–to expostulate
What majesty should be, what duty is,
Why day is day, night is night, and time is time.
Were nothing but to waste night, day, and time.
Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit,
And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,
I will be brief

From here:

Lord’s Prayer 56 words
23rd Psalm 118 words
Gettysburg Address 226 words
Ten Commandments 297 words
U.S. Dept of Agriculture Order on cabbage pricing 15,269 words

Anyone got any Gov papers of late ?
