I went to the New Yorker's on-line forum with Mr. Packer on this article. Here's my question and his response:
Comment From Andrew
Was it really necessary to use the term "legislative terrorism" in your article? Does that really add to the debate?
I thought about that phrase a few times before leaving it in. Probably not the best part of the piece, but when core interests of the country are up for grabs in every negotiation, I don't think one should shy away from strong language.
So, I guess when it's "core interests", anything goes. Remember that.
