Reading New Yorker Readers

Readers of this blog may be aware of my affection for the New Yorker and my attention to its weekly fiction offerings.

I found this piece amusing in its analysis of perennial complaints about the "typical New Yorker story"—amusing also because it appears to rope me in (tangentially, I suppose—click on the "inner sabremetrician" link) to its argument.

Anonymous, that is a great comment, and you should take credit for it, SM. (Am I right?)

Damn. I know too many teacher names there.

Hey, I'm SM. Has Anonymous / TQ been appropriating my initials?

You are ONE of my favorite sabremetrician—I'm not sure I could pick an absolute top. But you're up there, buddy.
