A lot of this was review so I don't have much to say. "The language of journalism is front-loaded" (297). This reminds me of the extreme version of the inverted pyramid. Putting more and more important information first. The only thing with this is to look out for mistakes or something that can be interpreted wrong. Make sure it's still understandable. ("Comprehensible" is really a better word and it is really explained in the last point of the section.)
"Omit needless words!" brings up a good point that should be followed, but remember when writing features, profiles, reviews that it is sometimes better (if you can properly do this) to catch the feel of the place or person even if that means adding extra (like the Dr. Suess article).
