Did we read the same article? The lead was "You canít talk about holiday sweets in Pittsburgh without craving Sarris Candies ó probably chocolate covered pretzels to be precise." Then it gave light background on the logistics behind how Sarris navigates the holiday season and included a video with a peek behind the scenes.

Completely harmless. Informative even! You mean to tell me you knew 300 people make candy during this time of year? I had no idea the operation was that big.

But reading this thread, you'd think they planted an Incline flag outside and claimed the store for Spain. If you found this smug then I question why you didn't quit the Internet like 15 years ago.

It was superficial and trite. Yes, the knowledge 300 people made candy during this time of year is interesting. The subject can't be given the kind of in-depth exploration it deserves in this blurb, which reads like advertising copy. Of course, it's important to bear in mind that "in-depth" to the devotees of the Incline and similar sites is anything that runs more than a couple grafs. That "extended" length tends to challenge the attention spans of both the writers and readers of this unique form of junk journalism.

For my taste, it's not that another story about Sarris is so offensive--Pittsburgh's a small city, there's only so much going on--but that, across the board, The Incline seems to be reveling in the obvious. It feels very low budget, fairly trite and sometimes lazy. That all said, any publication deserves a honeymoon period, say a year, to see if they really manage to pull together something fresh and useful.
