Committee Note:
This is a simple language version. It is easy to read with limited vocabulary, but it will not flow well for public reading, and those who prefer a more formal and dignified form of English. I inidicate cultural translation because to a limited extent cultural references have been made generic, so that they can be understood by a broad range of readers.
