"POV Blindness"
By Jennifer Forsberg Meyer
August 2011
The winning entry tops a very competitive field by giving both sides of the issue and doing so in a way that makes her point of view even stronger without diminishing concerns from the other side. Her reasoning is logical, her writing impeccable and persuasive enough to make most readers think twice about whether they are POV blind themselves.
