Sunday Sentence


In which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

What Abe soon found was that, best intentions notwithstanding, no one can control how the media communicates a story and what the public eventually understands.

Source: Alexandra Zapruder, Twenty-six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film (advance uncorrected proof; I’m trusting that that sentence will remain unchanged).

    Excellent selection, Erika. The last five words of the sentence are quite chilling.
