How to fill a page with nothing

The New York Times.

The editors of The New York Times know news when they see it — and apparently, readers agree! Here’s a brief excerpt from today’s most popular article:

Alison Cochrane, 30, who teaches English as a second language in Flushing, Queens, has a boyfriend and a coterie of friends on whom to lean. Nevertheless she calls her mother, Denise Martinez, 54, at least four times a day.

This continues for two columns. I used to do this when the choice was writing about nothing or writing about politically incorrect topics that could only be embarrassing to me and my friends. I remember I once wrote more than 5,000 words about tractor production under Stalin, since the only other story that day had something to do with poor people being hungry. As if that’s news.
