Active and passive

I'VE WRITTEN HERE about active and passive voice, and, yes, I prefer active voice. You can read more about it here or here. It looks like they both explain it well.

READERS OF THIS blog know I like concise speech, and here's a NY Times column on what the writer calls concision. I especially like the headline Eighth Army Push Bottles Up Germans. I suspect the Germans didn't like those bottles at all.
