Thank you, Grey Lady

Tomorrow the New York Times' opinion columnists go under web lock down-that is to say, you have to pay to read them. The Times obviously over-estimates the demand for their columnists. The number of eyes that see the rantings and ragings of Dowd, Krugman, et al, is going to drop precipitously, and for this, I'd like to thank the Times. Many (but not all) of their columnists have had an outsized influence on public opinion that is not justified by their talents. I'm glad to see that the Times is righting that wrong, even if they don't realize that yet.
