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.
