The link above is making the rounds among editorial types. Personally, I have a feeling this contributor's writing would be tedious under any circumstances. When you've made your point intellectually and graphically within the first three paragraphs, and then proceed to drive the point into the ground and break it off, you've gone on far too long for me.
As with all kinds of writing, judicious use of whatever tools are at the writer's disposal is crucial. That statement refers not only to dashes but to words themselves.
