Slate takes on pie

In true Slate fashion, they have an article that takes on pie ("It's gloppy, it's soggy, it's un-American.")

Where's the line between clever articles and fishing for hits? I mean I mostly agreed with the piece about why outdoor movies are no good. But sometimes it seems they are just trying too hard. And taking on pie, really? In my mind, the problem is bad pie; not pie itself. But that would be a less flashy article.

Here are some future headlines for Slate:
  • "Why 75 degree non-humid days are actually unpleasant"
  • "The case for eliminating grocery stores: they're over air-conditioned, play bad music, and encourage buying more food than you mean to"
  • "Should we get rid of the space bar?"
