In Progress Report 12, Charlie notes that Strauss is concerned he speaks too intelligently. He needs to speak in a simpler, more direct manner.

"Strauss again brought up my need to speak and write simply and directly so that people will understand me. He reminds me that language is sometimes a barrier instead of a pathway. Ironic to find myself on the other side of the intellectual fence."
