Oh, It’s That Kind of Non-Agression Pact

Hmm, we were always a bit confused about the reports of a non-agression pact between Freddy Ferrer and Virginia Fields.

We were further a bit puzzled when, after news broke that Freddy hadn’t been so mad at those Diallo officers after all, Virginia released a sharply-worded rebuttal.

But Joe Mercurio clears it up for us in the Times today:

“Mr. Ferrer and Ms. Fields recently reached an agreement not to attack each other during the primary campaign, but a spokesman for Ms. Fields, Joseph Mercurio, explained that they are allowed to contrast their positions.”

He further explained that if the two candidates meet in person, they will limit themselves to fighting with knives.
