*Parenthentically, how does The Atlantic decide, when it’s decreeing the end of one embedded power structure or another, whether to hedge its bets with a question mark? Hua Hsu’s cover story from the Jan/Feb ’09 issue, “The End of White America?”, was made into a question, the title of Rosin’s piece is a straight-up declaration, and with Good’s post we’re back to a question. Is there an internal style guide on this point?
