I appreciated this “advice” from a seasoned writer, even if I don’t always heed it:
“These really are the keys to writing blog posts, op-ed pieces and columns, and even testimonies to Congress:
- to speak fearlessly from the heart,
- get to the point immediately,
- keep the message simple and focused,
- and use the fewest words you can.” 
Boom… goes the Dynamite!
