Topic sentence, anyone?

Now, before I go off on this post, in the interest of full disclosure, Advisor and I have had several conversations about the importance of topic sentences, the subtext of which were usually "[Quinn], you really need to make sure your paragraphs make sense."

And that's why this particular two-sentence paragraph delighted me so much today. While reviewing the lit on detention homes for female "sex offenders" during World War I, I came across this gem:
Good behavior was rewarded with special privileges. A high wire stockade surrounded the premises.

End of paragraph. End of juxtaposition. Hee!
