NY Times strengthens its “bubble”

Remember all the “George Bush is in a Bubble” talk around Christmastime? No? Sorry. Well, anyway, the BDS[*1] meme of the day back then was that W was isolated from the real world–a “boy in the bubble” so to speak. Nonsense like most BDS babble, but there you have it.

The Times is refusing to allow email from non-subscribers to its star columnists. That’s right, you have to pay in order to be able to respond directly to the bloviators.
