Two Sides of the Story

For one event there will be as many points of view as there were individual witnesses. Somewhere in the midst of all these things, the truth is to be found. The NY Times recently printed an article in their Style section about the relationship between the journalist (Helaine Olen) and her nanny. If this article portrayals the style that the Times wishes its readers to emulate, I'll forgo paying my subscription. The article is a reaction to the nanny's online journal or blog. The two sides contradict one another. Ms Olen, who did not even tell the nanny the true reason for being fired, sounds jealous and resigned to her 40-something life style and is living vicariously and projecting into the 20-something lifestyle of the nanny. The nanny writes a nice essay and links to her archives to prove her point. Well worth reading, especially to an amaturer writer of fiction. It beautifully illustrates voice and point of view when multiple individuals view the same event. via Average Jane who lead me to Suburban Bliss and Blogging Baby where I found the pieces.
