Some double entendres should never be put in print. See title, supra.

No, the above quote does not refer to what most non-distaff readers might assume. Instead, it actually describes a problem faced by many contemporary legal writers when attempting to sit down and write cogently.

In a recent article, Bryan Garner and others noted that the press of modern distractions, “including texting, e-mail on a desktop computer, Blackberry messages,” and–dare I say–blogs, lures lawyers into “losing concentration with what they’re writing about,” which ultimately “negatively impacts both the continuity and even the accuracy of their product.”

I, for one, think this is hogwash because … well, dangit, I lost my train of thought.
