What is it that quite often I find articles in the NYT intimidating long?
On good days I get mad, because I think the text could have been cut down to a fraction of its length without loosing any of its information. On bad days though when I'm in doubt of my own competence, I fear that there might be important messages in the lengthy passages that I just don't get.
