And then, buried about 2/3rd into the article:
So twisty!! But no, I think my favorite part is when the author takes several paragraphs near the beginning of the piece to develop this narrative: "He has a daughter in college. He's going to lose his job. If he doesn't have a job, how can he pay for his daughter's college?". Now, I'm not sure what would happen next, because it wasn't explicitly stated. The daughter would still get to go to college for free, maybe?
I'm fascinated by how bad this piece is, definitely not typical NPR material. Nice find, rd95.
