Here’s the worst piece of domestic news that I’ve read in a long time. It comes from John Tierney writing near the end of his column in today’s New York Times:
Whatever they [the Congress] do the next two years, I won’t be here to kick them
around. This is my last column on the Op-Ed page. I’ve enjoyed the past
couple of years in Washington, but one election cycle is enough. I’m
returning full time to the subject and the city closest to my heart:
science and New York. I’ll be writing a column and a blog for the
Science Times section.
Science journalism will be much improved. The NYT‘s op-ed page will be desolate.
