Any additional comments?
It's great that the New Yorker has opinion pieces. Unlike "C," I enjoy reading a diversity of opinion and do not feel threatened by those that are contrary to mine. It is a learning experience.

David Remnick's usual slamming of Israel turned out to be completely wrong as the elections showed. A real disservice to the readers. The New Yorker is at its best best reporting the facts and injecting as little as possible of the editor's and author's prejudices. Their failure to edit out 2nd takes is also frankly an insult. Get it together already.
