The Bureaucratic Pen At Work

From The New York Review of Books:

"A typical planning document from King's College London, explains that the institution 'must create financially viable academic activity by disinvesting from areas that are at sub-critical level with no realistic prospect of extra investment.' "
(Anthony T. Grafton, "Britain, the Disgrace of the Universities," The New York Review of Books, April 8, 2010, p. 32.)

I know that, in my days as a bureaucrat, I never wrote anything quite that bad.
