The Big Money, Slate's companion site about financial issues, is currently running an article about a crackdown on "farms" that claim tax subsidies despite a lack of farming. It is a decent article but not one that I would send anyone off to read. The article hints that there are some interesting underlying complexities that it doesn't explore in depth and it doesn't make fun of Dan Rather even once.
I highlight this article because it is broken up into two pages. Page two is here. You don't have to follow that link, though, because I will reproduce page two in its entirety right here at Popehat:
I wonder how widespread that problem is across the country.
That's it. You click through to the second page and find that the article, which, come to think of it did seem finished, was finished.
I'm sure there is an ad-revenue optimizing reason for this but that is hardly a reasonable explanation. You may as well put an extra page on every article that has only Forrest Gump's assertion "And that's all I have to say about that."
