“What Happened At The Council” Today = HUH? Can Anyone Decipher This Sentence?
As a recognized news organization, we here at The B-Town Blog get emails and press releases from all over the place, including a daily one called “What happened at the council?” (link here) from the King County Council.
Here’s an actual sentence that was included in Tuesday’s (Sept. 8th) update:
“Approved an ordinance implementing the District Court Redistricting Committeeâ€™s amendment to the districting plan implementing provisions to increase the number of judges in the District Court. (Ordinance 2009-0453)”
We’ve never been one to particularly enjoy politicspeak, and this here sentence will now go down as Exhibit A in our prosecution of the abuse of technical, wonky jargon usage.
