Am I the only one who, upon reaching the end of an article, frequently thinks to himself, "What was the point of that article?"
Maybe my reading comprehension isn't so great, but it seems to me that a lot of articles lately don't seem to take a position and state their reasons for taking that position. They just seem to blather on somewhat randomly about a topic and then end. No conclusion. No summary. No point.
This is pretty basic high school Speech/English class type stuff that gets reiterated again in college. I would think someone whose career is in writing would know this stuff. Then again, I'm basing my expectations off of my own personal experience of the public education system in the USA. Maybe these things aren't covered in the UK where that article originated from.
