Give an overall impression of this dilemma. Is it effective, useful, confusing, informative, etc.?
Explain why you are characterizing the article as you are. Point to specific features or details to validate your impression. Overall I thought this was a confusing dilemma. First off, it is a very brief dilemma in which a lot of detail is left out. For example, you work at a paper company but your role is not stated, Careen's role is not stated, and neither is Davit's. For all I know David could be a random stranger that sells me hotdogs right outside of work. Even if David is a coworker, if he is not upper management, it is none of his business to confirm gossip or not. Without specifics, it is hard to come to a conclusion about how to approach a situation like this one.
