I went to the link without "absorbing" your comment. My thought was this: "Wow, if the Chicago Tribune went into this much detail on each shooting in Chicago, people would grow tired of such reporting and reporting on shootings would cease. Then I checked the Chicago Tribune. They have quit reporting on shootings. The only reports that make the newspaper are those that include deaths (anyone) or near-deaths (of rich and famous). Then I came back and re-read your comment. Yes, the length of this article is a good story. Having said that, it was incredibly long. I wonder if an intern wrote it and will submit it for a journalism course requirement. Smile.
