Some Stories Are Too Good To Be True: Mierle Ukeles & Hillary Clinton

I’m so pleased to report that yesterday’s story about Mierle Ukeles is, as I suspected, a bit too pat to be true. (It contains “wisps of truths,” she says — and they’re good wisps!) I’m pleased because I loved the story but I disliked the moral. Also? Hillary Clinton was just coughing in the situation room in that already-famous photograph. This is the deal with narrative, am I right?
