 There's an article entitled:

 "Holy Change Agent! Consultants Edit Out Jargon"
 by Jonathan D. Glater

in the June 14, 2003 issue of the New York Times online.

 The article begins:

 Deloitte Consulting, an arm of the accounting firm Deloitte Touche
Tohmatsu, has developed a free software program, Bullfighter, that
identifies jargon in documents.
