Paterson's swearing-in speech: the quick scan

Sure, you could actually take the time to read -- or listen to (video link) -- David Paterson's speech from yesterday. But why read when you can scan? Here's the text of the speech broken down into the 75 words that appeared with the greatest frequency. Think of it a little like that refrigerator magnet poetry -- just arrange the words into some sort of plausible order to make it sound like you actually know what's going on. For example:

Co-worker: Hey, how about Paterson's speech?

You: Yeah. Wow. He really focused on working to serve people going forward... and, um, New York.

So, yes, there are limits. Use with care...
