So the n+1 editors know about Sandra Tsing Loh, right?
n+1 does not have editors. It has only ab-editors, whose job is to heap more and more words onto their articles with giant trowels, burying any tiny kernels of thoughtfulness in sludgelike prose. Their servers groan beneath the burden, and still they shovel shovel shovel.
@deepomega After reading* that article, it's hard to disagree.
Also, The Atlantic is still better than when it was half-full of boring education policy articles every month. Plus, they managed to fob McArdle off on the Daily Beast (I understand they received a nice samovar in the trade).
*not every word, because dear lord that was an untraversable bog of prose
@CaptBackslap I was wondering where she'd gone to (so I could avoid it); thanks.
@Kevin Knox Seconded. What a dreadful, dreadful, writer. The socialite paleo-conservative with an MBA schtick gets old really fast.
So many sputtering jokes I want to make, all of them start "Of course not!"
Gods, this reminds me of that movie "Away We Go" — a bunch of hipsterish 30 year olds trying on others' lifestyles only to realize that their original style is the most authentic and virtuous.
Is Sandra Tsing Loh the one that wrote like a million essays about how she cheated on her husband then got divorced and how she's a shitty mother?
I'm not sure where everyone else is going with this, but STL's article about her father's dementia was a stunning tour de force. Also she's funny and incredibly attractive. Is there supposed to be some kind of downside here?
