Grasping at Straws, Episode 546

Does anyone remember that Sex and the City season 5 episode in which Carrie suffered from horrifying writer’s block, leading her to contemplate writing a column entitled “Socks and the City” where she wrote about her sock drawer and compared men to socks.

Probably the dumbest article ever, right?  FALSE.  A writer for The Atlantic, Owen Strachan, clearly had an indomitable case of writer’s block when he wrote a full-length article discussing the “inhumanness” of abortion and abortion rights as indicated by the use of the term “the Royal Baby” to refer to Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s newborn.

Writer’s block sucks.


I do wonder, however, how much Mr. Strachan got paid per word.
