I decided. Way too wordy, too much needless conversation, and too long.
I suspect you made a good point, but couldn't read the thing. Brevity is the soul of wit; this runs some 2,260 words -- give or take.
The usual newspaper editorial is limited to 600-700 words.

It’s a short story, not an editorial. I don’t usually write fiction. It’s too time consuming.

I'm in the middle of reading "Oliver Twist." Too bad Charles Dickens didn't have a better editor, eh? (/sarc)

Really moved by the article. (/approval)
