I gravitate to Hank Stuever’s prose. The veteran feature writer and editor now reviews television offerings. His long form articles, often edited by Allen, often drove me nuts.
Take his August 27 article: “Wawa vs. Sheetz: Isn’t That Convenient.” The endless article took readers on drives through suburban and small town wastelands on hot summer nights in search of the better of the two.
“They’re just convenience stores,” he wrote, “you shouldn’t think too hard about them. (Fair warning: This story thinks too hard about them.)”
Maddening, a waste of trees!
Is it the worst? Or just the most maddening?
