Paul Holmes on well constructed writing

Paul Holmes comments on the National Standards and shows how he can write after looking at a blank screen.

He then goes on to say in the very next sentence:
They words might even say something with, I hope, minimal impediment of clumsy construction.
Clumsy construction, indeed.
