  1. These are the sort of articles that really freak me out. Is it possible that every article in the NY Times is as full of shit as this one?

  2. David Brooks is truly a moron. Every single thing he writes is unreadable, nonsensical hogwash. It isn’t that he’s a conservative – it’s that he’s legitimately stupid.

  3. Dave– the answer is yes, on almost everything. My own greatest scorn comes from their moronic, middlebrow coverage of New York City, music and literature but is there any reason to think other subjects are covered any better? That Ben Ratliff’s idiotic Coltrane book has been fulsomely praised along with Alex Ross’ inane classical pastiche is akin to the world institutional circle jerk hegemony where Springsteen & U2 were the fucking Zeus & Apollo of the musical arts. Re: David Brooks, he’s (almost) beneath contempt/comment, although Patrick said it well.
