Sermon Length - How long should a preacher preach?

Since I just preached last week - I found this article very illuminating...I am MUCH more the 25 minute kind of preacher...

From Credenda.org:

We have heard of both extremes—ten minute homilies that are barely sufficient to whet the spiritual appetite, and then the two-hour jobs preached by some earnest Puritan to Cromwell's Parliament. The former is easily dismissed by conservative Christians as "sermonettes for Christianettes," and the latter are obviously . . . well, a little swollen.
