Mammy's Little Baby Loves Shorteners, Shorteners...

URL shorteners, that is, like tinyurl or bit.ly . The U.S. government loves 'em so much that it is about to start its second URL shortener site, 1.usa.gov, specifically to shorten .gov URLs. When the whole world (or at least a Twitter tweeter or a text message writer) is forced to express itself in 140-character chomps, I suppose there's justification. But I already have trouble expressing two or three distinct thoughts in the considerably larger size permitted by AT&T text messages. Yes, I'll plead to "verbose," but nothing worse!
