Student Evals in the NYTimes

I read this article in the NY Times magazine on Sunday. It is from a journalist who apparently takes his negative comments a bit too seriously.

We have discussed evaluations here before, but this guy gets carried away feeling the pain from a few negative words. I almost always have someone who writes something negative, but only one person. I don't take them seriously and I don't know why the author here does. . .

He's a journalist. He's filling in for William Safire. He had a column due; he had to write about *something*. He's trying to be amusing, to entertain his readers, and so he plays it up a bit. It's what feature writers (and bloggers, for that matter)do.
