We appreciate the respectful, compassionate and detached stance of this piece. Streeter writes about Arnie Koslow, a lonely man who is looking back on his life as the timekeeper for some of boxing’s greatest matches. The piece’s stance is achieved through plain, well-crafted sentences and scenes, a clean and effective structure and the development of significant themes. By pursuing the big themes of time and death, Streeter lends Koslow dignity; Koslow becomes an important character in the story we’re all a part of.
