A terse “no comment” can send a bad message, but what are your alternatives?
A reader recently sent me a document called “101 Ways To Not Comment Without Using The Words ‘No Comment.'” It’s full of witticisms, some more useful than others.
He had received the handout at a legal conference more than a decade ago and couldn’t remember its source. (I contacted the organization that hosted the conference; its communications director was also unable to identify the provenance of the document.) My own web searches have also proved fruitless.
