Philip Greenspun:

Our literary culture is impoverished when every idea is stretched or amputated to fit the Procrustean bed made up by magazine and book publishers. When an author runs out of relevant stuff to say after 20 or 30 pages, that’s how long the essay should be.

Quoting the same passage that Gruber did, but fuck it. Bravo, Philip.
