The Times dishonest headline:
— debunked by Timesman Prof. Krugman here. (And the Times exacerbates the article with a dishonest analysis as well!)Shameful…. For years, I’ve wondered whether the paper was edited in any substantive way, that when editors approve something, they put any thought into it. Now I wonder whether, alternatively, they’re just stupid.. May be so at the Times: Look at Pinch and Keller.

Leadership we needThe Wisconsin cancer:
What happens when giving back to supporters is more important than doing what needs to be done (buried in Sunday’s Times). Republican government is little better than racketeering, huh?
