It speaks volumes about the eloquence of documents when you consider that the Gettysburg Address is 269 words long. The Declaration of Independence - 1,337 words. The Holy Bible is 773 thousand words. The U.S. tax code began in 1913 with 11,400 words. Today? Try over 8 million words. And every time it changes, they don't eliminate any words, they just keep adding new ones. I guess we should consider ourselves lucky it isn't down to 7 words. How much did you make? Send it!
