My disgust does not, however, extend to the writing sample portion of the test. The moment that a writing sample first became part of the SAT at least marked the inclusion of something roughly resembling a genuine academic skill. And the fact that the writing portion is now asking you about real world issues from the world of popular culture, a place where – for good or bad – most people reside, gives me hope that the SAT may be taking small steps toward a real and not always noble place where people watch junk TV, do stupid things, act irrationally, and – only occasionally and reluctantly – face hard truths.
