The Length of the Health Care Bill

The folks over at the Computational Legal Studies blog have a great post about the Health Care Reform Bill. Among other findings, they point that there are fewer substantive words in the bill – derided by some for its length – than in most of the Harry Potter books.  The length of the overall bill is largely due to filler – – paragraph breaks, large margins, etc. (That doesn’t mean that the remainder is easily intelligible.)

    Yes, but which of the Harry Potter books? There is a real difference between Philospher’s Stone and Goblet of Fire.
