Op-Ed Contributor – For Sale – The $100 House – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/08/opinion/08barlow.html?scp=2&sq=detroit%20solar&st=cse This is the second piece for Rod, and one which gives me a glimmer of hope for this current, lamentable situation: Detroit was hit just as hard – and just as early – as Cleveland, with foreclosed properties being sold for as low as $100. Most of these have been gutted of fixtures, wiring […]

All Boarded Up – How Cleveland is Dealing With Mass Foreclosure – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/08/magazine/08Foreclosure-t.html?scp=1&sq=cleveland%20foreclosure&st=cse The first of two postings dedicated to (as they were inspired by) my crusading friend, RodneyHarrington. The NYTimes Magazine did a piece last weekend about Cleveland – just a short drive from Rodney’s crumbling Ohio hometown – and the effects that are being felt from the economic meltdown, which had already asserted itself pretty […]

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/23/us/politics/22web-baker.html?hp Mr. Bush knew that was coming as he winged his way back to Midland, Tex., on Tuesday.

Bolten, Ed Gillespie, Margaret Spellings, Clay Johnson, Alberto […]

Op-Ed Columnist – The Long, Lame Goodbye – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/18/opinion/18dowd.html?_r=1 Maureen Dowd almost writes a perfect column. Like Persian carpet makers, though, she weaves an imperfection in with the trite last line. Avoid that and it’s well worth a read.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/17/nyregion/17flight.html?hp&pagewanted=all A word about this week’s poorly-named “Miracle on the Hudson” incident: As more than a few have said, calling it a miracle fails to acknowledge the spectacular skill, training, and quick thinking that allowed all involved to walk away from a plane crash and an icy splash. Some passengers screamed, others tucked their heads […]

Op-Ed Columnist – Forgive and Forget? – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/16/opinion/16krugman.html?em Paul Krugman explains why sooner is better for prosecution of the Bush Administration’s illegalities. With Obama preaching bipartisanship, of course, it won’t happen. A shame, since it would’ve been a grand gesture to set the standard of following the Constitution and actively pursuing those who have spent the last eight years undermining it. Now, […]

W. Mark Felt, Watergate Deep Throat, Dies at 95 – Obituary (Obit) – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/19/washington/19felt.html?hp Deep Throat has died. As thrilled as I was to learn his true identity a few years ago, having a real person in the place of Woodward’s faceless correspondent has made watching All the President’s Men a little less spine-tingling. And Felt being a storied government employee, with a full resume and life history, […]

Op-Ed Columnist – The Insider’s Crusade – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/21/opinion/21brooks.html?_r=1&oref=slogin Stodgy NYTimes columnist David Brooks aims for funny and – unusually – nails it: This truly will be an administration that looks like America, or at least that slice of America that got double 800s on their SATs. Even more than past administrations, this will be a valedictocracy – rule by those who graduate […]

Parents’ Night With the President – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/16/fashion/16school.html?pagewanted=all I can’t wait to see Obama take office, not least because his young family has me utterly charmed, and I’d love to see more of them. I’m not alone, judging by this incredibly cute reaction from a possible First Daughter schoolmate: And for many black parents and students, the buzz has been thrilling. Dylan […]
