Sometimes Less is More

John Major, former prime minister of Great Britain, found himself one day in a green room with Boris Yeltsin, then president of Russia. They were about to give a joint press conference.

Major said, “Boris, if you had to describe the state of Russia in one word, what would you say?”?

Yeltsin thought for a moment and said, “Good.”?

Major said, “What if you had two words to describe it?”?

Yeltsin said, “Not good.”?
