The author’s name caught my eye for some reason I didn’t comprehend. After a bit (20 minutes) of racking my memory, I thought that she might have been someone I mentioned before on “The way I see it”.

Concise and succinct, this article should shed some light on a phenomenon that has been under discussion for a couple of years now.
