Nothing like a decisive opening editorial paragraph...

The Chronicle Editorial Board, which is tasked with producing a whopping two editorials per day, came up with this winner of an opening paragraph today:

If Houston's air is to be cleaned and made safe to breathe, industry and government must work together. In some instances industry and government are working together, but toward the opposite end.

And that incoherence would be the intelligent reader's cue to stop reading.

Do any sections of the Chronicle have editors these days?

(Hat tip to Cory Crow for spotting this latest Chronsense).

When one combines 1984-style Doublespeak with highly corrosive Catch-22 bureaucracy, the precipitate is CHRONSENSE.

Ah, Chronsense is nice.  That's going on the shelf beside Mrs. White and Church of Dan as accurate descriptors.
