New York Times Op-Id Columnists

Compare and contrast in clear idiomatic English:

Joe Nocera’s New York Times op-ed on Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography, and Times Op-It Girl Maureen Dowd’s take.

Nocera’s piece is all about what Isaacson was unable to accomplish (“In ‘Steve Jobs,’ Walter Isaacson has recounted a life — a big, sprawling, amazing life. It is a serious accomplishment. What remains for future biographers is to make sense of that life.”)

Dowd’s piece, by contrast, is a juicy jangle of the buzzy bits.

Talk among yourselves.
