Good find. Thanks, Aldous.
Troll whining. Typical, but still disgraceful.
Interesting story I just skimmed through about that era, thanks.So now we have the Duranty Prize for Mendacity in reporting. No use nominating Chen and Richtel just for the shaming value, because it's supposed to be about foreign affairs.Maybe we could nominate them for a Pullet Surprise. Winners receive a rubber chicken, mounted on a simulated mahogany plaque.
I'm assuming you'll soon be wearing left and right 80" (virtual) screens on your face. Then all bets about content are off.

I wonder if this is why Pogue left.And to think I used to look to the Times with respect.Oh, and thanks to DED for a good Sunday read.

Try rhyming it with "parents." Close enough, brain unstuck.
You just told him to quit the political nonsense. That's enough. No need to add some of your own.
