Regarding TV interviews, the rule of course is to say as
little as possible, so that they don't have too much to
choose from. Short sentences. Complete sentences that stand
alone. And although there is a feeling of pressure when an
interviewer is waiting for a response, in reality of course
time is on your side. You can take as much time as you like
to phrase a sentence precisely, and the preliminary pause
will be edited out along with the interviewer's question
(usually). Lastly, if you say something that you realize was
an error, if you immediately use a four-letter word in the
middle of the sentence, you can be sure they won't be able to
salvage that for broadcast. "Sorry, I fucked that up, let me
start over" is a useful phrase.

As for Mark Plus, I wish he could have been alive 100 years
ago to predict that future demands for horse-drawn
transportation would clearly outstrip the supply of oats.
