We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
When you step in it this many times in a row, it's no accident.
It is way past time, in our opinion, to boycott them. Sisu. Bush's anger was gratifying to many. At Maggie's, we have all quit our subscriptions over the past year. Just could not stomach their propaganda. Miss their Travel Section, though - but who can afford all those trips anyway?
The NYT has made itself the chardonnay-sippping, 60s-era, radical chic, Manhattan limo liberal mouthpiece rather than a serious national paper. (See post immediately below.) But to add treason to the mix is just over the top. We can all return to them, if and when they return to sanity - or land in jail. In the meantime, it's The New York Sun for us. And the CSM. The Globe is = NYT.
I agree entirely but no other crossword puzzle even comes close and they charge a ridiculous fee to do it online. On the other hand, a dollar a day for a crossword is nuts. Then again, THEY are nuts. Did you see today's NYPost front page? Silly but funny.
So, are you all going to boycott the Wall Street Journal as well? They effectively had the same article. Or boycott the president? He has already said most of the information in the article in the past, said it first, and released a great deal of supposedly sensitive information to the media.
After all, if one is going to boycott for a certain reason one might as well be consistant and boycott others who are doing the same, right?
