‘It looks like 1989 needs a price check on something’

For some reason, there are still people who believe that the writing in The New Yorker is vastly superior to what you’ll read at

“Far range” is not visible to the naked eye, and that’s what most aerial battles look like: Something shows up on a computer, a jet fires a missile at seemingly nothing and then, a few minutes later, something blows up somewhere that you cannot see. It’s less like “high-stakes plane jockeying” and more like “filing a request for death” that another department, miles away, might or might not grant.

(Not to mention, more accurate…)
