The haunting of the qualifier

I adore everything about this piece from Benjamin Dreyer. The topics, the brevity, the pacing, the low-key passion, and the unshakable belief that I, his reader, am a writer worth his cautions. I love the way he takes very to task, outing it as fraudulent, casting harsh light on the thin wateriness of qualification, and presenting us a moment to which any of us can aspire: an unqualified compliment.

This is crafty writing.
Well done.
