Leading you on
Check out Eugene's obit story on Frances Hahn in today's paper, and one thing in particular: How, in sections 2, 3 and 4, Eugene gives you a sentence that makes a promise what's ahead in the story ... a sentence to pique your curiousity and entice you to keep reading. Excellent piece of writing (and, to boot, the tone of each of those sentences is just right for the story).
