le temps, maitresse crudele

Wines of the Times

Bloggers of the Times

Nagourney is enough of an insufferable, self-congratulatory chucklehead that I almost like those bloggers. He should have an emo-blog where he talks about his feelings. There, he could express his OMIGOD WTF!1!! sensibilities without worrying that millions of readers will puke on the parakeet cage liner his boss is pleased to call "the paper of record".

I often wonder if he trolls blogs in his spare time. His style is familiar.

I don't know. More Nagourney doesn't sound too appetizing. It's like seeing the biggest loser in the class - the kid wearing long black socks and shorts - making lame fun of an exact replica of himself, only he doesn't see the resemblance.

I had hopes that he would confine himself to the blog. Better still, that he would be confined to it. Reporting for the NY Times carries some prestige, if only because some highly competent people still work there.

It's such a shame that Nagourney is there. I think it's his ditzy perkiness that bothers me most. He's a frat pledge who was broken by the initiation, rejected even though he endured it and now makes things better by sucking up to his tormentors with those inane jibes.

I'm sure people of competence manage to work at the Times. But what I said about Nagourney wasn't really specifically about him. It was about the Times in toto. I should have made that clear.
