Here’s a great website,, dedicated to longform journalism — articles with more than 4,000 words. What a great idea.

I’m a big fan of brevity and clarity — but some stories cannot be told in a short space. I’ll have to lobby the editors to include links to two of my favorite pieces: “The Last Heavy Footfalls of Doc Hullender” by Thomas Lake and “Why David beat Goliath” by Malcolm Gladwell.
