While looking for more quotes about opposing arguments, Sally came across a web site that looked at at how one particular social group has reacted to Problem X. Suddenly she remembered a passage from a different source that mentioned this same social group.
When she read both sources again, she suddenly realized that Problem X had helped this particular social group far more than it had harmed them. "This is great!" she said to herself. "It's a surprise twist that will really make my paper look interesting!"
So, she added a new paragraph:
But to the Group Y community, the question of
whether Situation X is really a problem is not so
Academics and politicians who are too quickto think of Situation X as major socialproblem are ignoring the particular culturalviewpoint of members of Group Y, who have forseveral generations accepted and evenwelcomed each successive incident ofSituation X. (Group Y Home Page, par. 2)
Brown's study found that men and women from Group Y who
benefited from Situation X had slightly higher blood
pressure, and were slightly less educated than average.
Nevertheless, men who reported a 'high' or 'steady'
incidents of Situation X were 20% less likelyto stay at home Saturday nights withoutdates. Group Y women in the same categoryhad clearer skin and taller boyfriends. (34)
Sally felt pretty good about her paper... which was important, because by now it was one in the morning!
