Hold on, I hear somebody coming...

This is James Bennet, editor of The Atlantic.

Most readers know that the views expressed on Ta-Nehisi's blog are his own and don't always reflect the views of The Atlantic. Such is the case with regard to Ta-Nehisi's "analysis" of the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins. Our institution has partnered with the Redskins, and Daniel Snyder, on a number of projects, and we have a great deal of respect for Snyder's, uhm, personnel moves. We at The Atlantic do not take sides in the ongoing dispute between that asshole Jerry Jones's Cowgirls and the winning machine built by Daniel Snyder. The Redskins are historic leaders in the sports world, and Dan Snyder may be the greatest owner in history. We look forward to box seats in the future.
