Netiquette IQ Quote of The Day - Redundancies - Via Former Vice President Dan Qualye

Some redundancies are inadvertently funny. Once I began working on yesterday's blog, it became clear to me that it is common with so many of us. Phrases that we take for granted can be egregious. Once you start thinking about them, you will start weeding them out of your email! Today's quote may have come about as a result of Dan Quayle taking himself a bit too seriously!

"If we do not succeed, we run the risk of failure."
Former Vice-President Dan Quayle
In addition to this blog, I have authored the premiere book on Netiquette, "Netiquette IQ - A Comprehensive Guide to Improve, Enhance and Add Power to Your Email". You can view my profile, reviews of the book and content excerpts at:
