The Gray Lady blinks
I love the New York Times online, because it covers the world in a single page--and also because of the occasional unintended hilarity of its editorials and op-eds. (I generally only read the front-page précis, to stay under the limit for freeloaders.) Today's lead editorial is priceless:
It is time to hold President Vladimir Putin to his words of support in getting to the bottom of the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.It's time? Really, it's time?
And who in this administration is going to get tough with Mr. Putin? John Kerry, I suppose, the man who was defeated when he ran for president but who now seems to be the only president we've got when it comes to dealing with the outside world.
