Snowfall in New York

It was snowing in New York today -- as in snow job, falling from the pages of the New York Times. The lead editorial, The Trust Gap, is a shrill anti-Bush polemic about which one can only say, "Haven't we read all this before?"

It was almost as if Times editorial writers had placed a quarter in their "Bush Bash Jukebox."

Meanwhile, on the following page, ace "readers representative"Barney Calame announces the results of an investigation into a burning coverage issue. Seems the Times has been omitting roll-call votes from its Congressional coverage.

Wait a second. That can't be right. I know that Barney is bad -- I don't bother to call him the "Empty Suit" anymore as it too obvious. But a story on roll calls? No newspaper ombudsman, not even Barney, is that bad.

Stephen Spruiell of the National Review is right: I've been reading the Times too much. I've started hallucinating.
