Daniel Okrent, the New York Times's first and probably last real Public Editor, wrote the following last column; "13 Things I Meant to Write About but Never Did" http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/22/weekinreview/22okrent.html?pagewanted=all It provides examples of the liberal, actually:"urban" leaning according to "Pinch", of every aspect of the paper. He had this to say bout Paul Krigman "2. Op-Ed columnist Paul Krugman has the disturbing habit of shaping, slicing and selectively citing numbers in a fashion that pleases his acolytes but leaves him open to substantive assaults." The column is worth reading or rereading.

The pro-statism crowd routinely argues that we need more government. Every so often, though, one of them inadvertently stumbles on the truth. But they then refuse to draw the logical conclusion. For instance.
