 @Evil Overlord "an objective piece about opportunities for peace"

I don't see that happening -- not as non-fiction anyway

 @dakirsch44 Personally, I'd suggest that anyone involved in stealing my home is not innocent.  I mean, I'd try not to kill the kids, but not at the expense of letting the parents live (which is probably the same standard the military would use for a legit target).

I'm afraid that neither neither yourself nor Farhad Manjoo, Kevin Kelleher or Adam Penenberg quite qualify as the caliber of reporters I think of when I think of New Yorker-style long form journalism.  That's going to sound harsher than I intended it.  I've read at least a bit of work from all four of you and I appreciate and respect your work and (hard-earned) status as accomplished journalists.  You're just not there, yet.  Perhaps it's a byproduct of working in the tech press, where investigative work is even rarer than it is in other venues.  I will revise my judgment after you've gotten a few politicians thrown in jail, or freed someone who was wrongly convicted, or something of similar import.
