Letters: Former Philadelphia magazine editor Larry Platt talks about 'tackling'

Posted: July 01, 2010

IN HIS reporting of my leave-taking as editor of Philadelphia magazine, Dan Gross included in his description of my "un-bosslike" behavior "tackling in the hallways."

To be clear, there had been no tackling in the hallways of Philadelphia magazine since 2003, which is when I rescinded my Mandatory Coed Tackling Policy, in large part due to my very responsible concerns for workplace safety.

Interestingly, before rescinding the policy, then-staff writer Sasha Issenberg, though short, was a particularly adept tackler. He went for the knees.
