The A1 Verse: Wide-angle assassination

By Thomas Gaulkin | November 30, 2020

Every so often, a story published on the front page of the New York Times is so well written, meaningful, and appropriate to the Bulletin’s concerns that small snippets of it, properly chosen and arranged, produce something more than journalism, something that approaches … poetry. That blessed coincidence occurred today, November 30, 2020.

We suspect it’ll occur again.

Iran Struggles For a Response To Bold Strikes

(From the original by David D. Kirkpatrick, Ronen Bergman and Farnaz Fassihi)

“The nuclear program”
a television broadcast—
Prime content!
Remember that name,
fresh news,
a filmmaker,
cameras unharmed,
like Hollywood.

Together, we make the world safer.
