25 Commandments for Journalists - Overlaps With George Orwell's "Politics and the English Language"

This seemed to be going around twitter a lot. The 25 Commandments for Jouurnalists. Its constant harping on brevity reminded me of that old George Orwell essay (and here's the original link from when I read it ten years ago), so I thought I should save it. The rules in both these write-ups are useful for blogging. I've got to keep your attention too, haven't I?

Bonjour TLW,

Please explain the difference between fashionable atheism and atheism. (Re your comment on Tazeen's blog).

Just one more question: is it possible to be atheist in Pakistan or is one in that case a walking corpse?

Cheers to you
Georg
