GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Verbosity is verbal, so what is word diarrhea called in its various other forms? We don’t get an answer to that, but we do learn from the Economist, based on a May 2012 McKinsey report on social networks and other media (MGI, The Social Economy), that Americans are talking to each other, more and more, and using various media to do so. The comments are fun to read.
I have to confess that while watching the start of an interview with Sarah Palin (remember her?) on the follies of Todd Akin, I began to wish some Americans would talk less.
