Gail Collins Is Ruining the Times

Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration; the ruin of the 'Paper of Record' started long ago. Certainly, though, Collins is hastening its decline. Under her direction of the editorial board, the Times has an astonishingly poor track record. Yesterday, she gave up valuable space to an incredibly vapid, seemingly pointless piece about Al Gore picking up someone's dropped keys and thus restoring a Muslim's faith in America (I'm not joking); today, the Times comes out with a ringing endorsement of the Supreme Court's curtailment of private property rights in the land of the free (a much larger power grab than anything in the Patriot Act). Good luck getting people to pay for this...
