    •  That's not my style. (5+ / 0-)

      Not everybody reads the New Yorker of course, but those who do, do not do so because they are seeking brevity.

      One can get brevity very easily of course.   One could always get all of one's information from the television news.

        change [if I may have a request].

        In this age of sound bites, snips and hyper-edited media clips, it is great - I mean GREAT - to read posts like these.

        To find a union of passion and cerebral capability on a topic near and dear to my own passion, experience and understanding is a gift.

        The historical context is great; the research is appreciated; and the help, motivation and impact to my own cause is and I hope continues to me - enormous.

          The excessive Attention Deficit Disorder exhibited in the comments section here notwithstanding, America needs more in depth discussion (and some rambling is okay too), if only to force the public to think critically and not automatically buy into 20-second sound-bites, headline news, and all of the other "information junk" out there.

          On the surface, this is a pro-nuclear/anti-nuclear debate. In the larger sense, however, I see this, and my part in it, as a campaign against ignorance and blind dogma (cf. my recent troll-rating). A diary is worthless unless it challenges one to think.

    •  and you don't have to read them either (0+ / 0-)

      If you don't like it, don't read it.  

      If you don't like abortions, don't have one.
