NYT Columnists - Is This the Best They Could Get?
Brooks' last column was excellent, but he's pretty weak normally. Krugman is a brilliant economist, but a partisan hack as a political writer (though his latest column, on health care, is also excellent - but of course he also misses the real issue behind the health care debate as do so many others). Dowd - well, she can be clever, but the bitterness is just over the top. And then there's Friedman. If his writing has always bothered you but you weren't sure why, Steve Sailer links to an absolutely hilarious review of Friedman's new book that will explain why. You will laugh out loud - so if you're not alone be prepared for some annoyed looks from people around you.
