The late (and IMO great although seriously right-wing) Bavarian
politician Franz-Josef Strauss once commented that the importance
of a message was inversely proportional to its length.  He cited:

   a) A red light
   b) A washroom sign
   c) The Ten Commandments
   d) The Gettysburg Address
   e) A 25,000-word EC directive on the shape of tractor seats.
