Have you read Shades of preference in storytelling?

We like stories. This is obvious when you read sports columns. Most of the time there’s really no substantive value-add. If you want substance, just check box scores. But we want a story. So sports columnists give us a story.

I like the last point the author is making: Just as I have changed over time, so humans as a species have different aesthetic preferences, rather than superior and inferior ones. I wish that people would be a bit more self-aware about this.

Btw: how do you like the storytelling in the Monty Python Sketch? I think it's interesting to look at it from a storytelling perspektive.
