I've become a tad fascinated with the growing trend in "narrative" journalism.  These days, it often borders on a stream-of-consciousness style, "short and pithy" is far from the rule of the day.

 

Twenty years ago, the narrative style permitted a means by which to share facts and information in a personalized style that invited the reader to uniquely identify with underlying circumstances.  I think that this style has been corrupted by an intrusion that has been fostered in internet blogs -- where a writer's ego and unrestrained column inches hold disproportionate sway in determining content.
