abstinence article

Following is a link to a great article on an abstinence club at Harvard. I’m posting this not only because of the subject but because I think it is an example of excellent journalism. Randall, the journalist, makes his own subtle argument throughout the article by the order in which he chooses to relate parts of the story. This way you get both sides of the story. The girl’s argument and the journalist’s, but the journalist doesn’t disrespect her or hit you over the head with his beliefs. She brings up important and relevant points, but the journalist shows how they are undermined by her own personal issues (and the boy’s as well). Anyway, you should ponder it for yourself:
