HYG loves all journalists and everything they do, so probably.

I did enjoy this article!

Also, after an evening thinking about it, I agree the outing of Elena Ferrante was a bad thing to do.

I did enjoy this article too. However, I do not recall the cartoons in question. Sorry, Frank, you’re not a genius after all.
