The Run-On Hall of Fame

Here are some of my favorite run-ons.  Got a favorite of your own?  Please tell me about it!

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

— from the Declaration of Independence

“The proposed solution is…

…a common set of services and tools that provide services and information to customers in support of their business and patrons…

…and enhance their relationship with MANUCORP…

…available on each MANUCORP website focused on a specific product or category…

…accessible by mobile devices…

…whose content and services are organized according to their timeliness…

…supported by a customer profile which grows over time…

…informed by explicitly stated preferences, search terms entered and acted upon, and other online patterns of use…

…designed to provide increasingly personalized content and tools, based on the evolution of the customer profile…

…that may include information about the customer’s business, personal messages and alerts, and specified links to content and tools…

…which can be accessed through any participating product or category site.”

— strategy statement, Dante Murphy

“The vast supply of information tools and services does not meet the growing global demand, because the digital channel is underutilized and the content is not optimized for interaction and engagement.”

— problem statement, Dante Murphy
