'Sweating with the enemy':
Never mind how the headline establishes how the story is framed
at the start, i.e. the "enemy." How about the ending? Turns out the Titanic, earth-shattering, WWII-like, life-or-death "dilemma" over whether the heroic upper-middle class protagonist should be working out at Curves really doesn't matter that much to her. ... It was the long
cover story of the Globe Magazine today. ...
So I don't get accused of a being too anti-Globe (and I am a Heraldite), how about running a far more worthy magazine cover story about a mother who is asked -- out of the blue -- by her her 16-year-old son whether he should join the Army?
Now there's a "dilemma." Joan's moving piece was about 700 words. The "Sweating with the enemy" piece was God-knows-how-long beyond worth mentioning. ... Curves vs. War. Which do you think is more important?
