Legal Description of Cincinnati

Instead of sleeping (I should be), I'm back reading blogs that I've been missing out and stumbled on this amazing bit from CityKin -- a legal description of the city of Cincinnati by engineers... which includes a 21 page run-on sentence, single spaced. I haven't even begun to read it, but it's fascination. It begins by this demarcation:

I majored in Urban Planning and Public Administration at Miami University. Like you, Mr. CityKin... I'm glad I skipped it, too.
