Medium is going for the slow reader demographic.
Also, how is it possible that they didn't realize longer high quality posts would get less traffic than short clickbait?

I'm not sure what kind of sexy demographics The Awl is going after now.
@Gef the Talking Mongoose: It's nice to see you've overcome your preference for orality.
But we'll never tire using it for porn.
I would like to linger in the rum palace.
It's incredible that an "explainer" that includes a bit of the data showing how devastating the effects of poverty and racism are, somehow brings it all back around to simply "fidgety boys."
It's just basic free market economic theory. When a bridge collapses, it's because drivers made a poor consumer choice to use a damaged bridge instead of a well-maintained bridge. Since maintenance costs money, wise consumers will choose to pay exorbitant fees to use a privately-owned non-collapsing bridge. The poors will choose to swim, because they have not performed a proper cost evaluation of their lives vs bridge fees. Thus, an self-regulating economy will eliminate those incapable of functioning within it, and we are one step closer to our libertarian utopia.

Potentially offensive to both the Irish and Mexicans! These guys really are genius at reaching a wide demographic.
