I love this where the writer, probably feeling that tapping of political PC conformity on his mental shoulder (in this case however nothing severe), amends an alteration (second sentence) to what would normally stand alone (first sentence): “Drawing, for many people, is that phantom skill they remember having in elementary school, when they drew with great relish and abandon. Crayon and colored pencil drawings of fancy princesses poured out onto the sketchbooks of the girls, while planes and ships, usually aflame, battled it out in the boys’ drawings. Occasionally boys drew princesses and girls drew gunboats…). Funny–he had to get that in. Altogether a nice article on the pleasantries of drawing.  Here (The NY Times)
