Yeah, It’s EXACTLY Like That…

I’ve always loved the New York Times.  I’ve been reading it since I was a kid.  But this comment by the paper’s Executive Editor, Bill “Isn’t the Iraq War Just Swell?” Keller, makes me want to cancel my subscription:

Saving the New York Times now ranks with saving Darfur as a high-minded cause.

Yeah, propping up the Gray Lady is just as important as preventing the deaths of untold thousands.  I hope my friends at Enough and Stop Genocide Now will adjust their mandates accordingly.

It’s a statement of fact, and probably correct. It’s not normative — that is, he didn’t say that the Times should be as important a cause as Darfur. It is, however, an acute comment on the incorrigible inconsequentiality of the high-minded.
