The NYT can’t go the way of Newsweek soon enough to please me. I see that the unphotogenic Jill is embracing an approach young leftists, after they’ve destroyed a business or a political entity, often use in a vain attempt at damage control, which is to pressure older persons go eat worms and die.
Senior editors at the NYT are liberal geeks too, and I hold no brief for them generally. But I do weary of the tyranny of the young, a backbone of leftism. After prayerful consideration, taking into account diplomatic niceties and the requirements of etiquette and good taste, I believe I’ve hit upon the measured response seniors on the NYT need to offer La Abramson, to wit: “BUGGER OFF, TOOTS!!”
On a personal note, I frequently get phone calls where a script-reading woman offers me a subscription to the Times at what I guess are supposed to be attractive rates. To the last caller I said, “You sound like a nice young woman, and don’t take this personally. But I have to tell you that if the NYT started arriving on my front lawn for nothing I would have your circulation manager arrested for littering.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
