"Delivered on the Floor" sounds much more impressive than "handed to the Recorder for inclusion in the Record".

Sometime I wonder what it would have been like to have simply everything phrased as a speech.

The Gettysburg address was an afterthought - the primary speaker that day was someone who spoke for 2 HOURS. Straight. The golden age of Oratory.

Somehow a 5 second sound bite seems do hollow.
