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.”
