The Fine Art of the Lead
 / 

It’s been a while since I read a news article that really grabbed me. And I haven’t even gotten halfway through this NYT story yet; all I know is the lead is a killer:

When they rewind the video of the fight in the cage, all the blood will spray back into Gervis Fool Bull’s nose, all the screams will be sucked into the collective chest of the sweating crowd, and the fist will snap back toward the big truck driver from Iowa who threw it, a man with a mohawk haircut who grew up fighting his twin brother in the neighborhood junkyard.

Good lord! It’s so well-written!
