Why does anyone who has the ability to think quote the NYT? There is no truth in the rag. I would never waste a second reading it even if I found it on a table in Starbucks. It is nothing but cat litter. The writers for NYT are anencephalic; those are who the rag hires. They are a borg--a nonthinking continually lying borg. NYT does not report news; it reports what it thinks the liberal proles who read it should think as they are part of the borg and incapable of cogent thought. If normal people would ignore the rag, it would disappear.
