Every so often, a story published on the front page of the New York Times is so well written, meaningful, and appropriate to the Bulletin’s concerns that small snippets of it, properly chosen and arranged, produce something more than journalism, something that approaches … poetry. That blessed coincidence occurred June 7, 2021.

We suspect it’ll occur again.

(from the original by Ivan Penn)

yet problems abound.
