Fair Point: Arnot Vs. Rivera


A reader:

There’s only one route to Baghdad from Kut – all the maps on all the
channels show it. It’d be a lot like saying, “I’m going to take I-94 from
Chicago to Milwaukee.” It’s the only major route, you don’t need anything
but a map to figure it out. Now, if he was saying “we’re heading not on
the main route which everyone can see on a map between these two close
cities, but on a series of these specific side roads…”, well, he should
get the Arnett/Rivera treatment.
