It has been said that a camel is a horse put together by a committee.
Compromise often leads to ridiculous results, but the paperwork looks
good on on paper the teamwork paradigm is satisfied. Classic example, I
wrote a three page document. The recipient complained that the document
should be no more than one page. After trying to cut back on the
language, I realized that too much meaning would be sacrificed in the
name of brevity. I presented the document in 6 pt type with very narrow
margins. The comment upon presentation: "That is exactly what we wanted,
I knew you could do it."
