http://movies2.nytimes.com/2007/01/13/movies/13prim.html My love for NY Times movie writer A.O. Scott knows no bounds. His reviews are always a joy to read, but seldom more so than when he really, really dislikes a movie. The Times reviewers even infuse fun into the parental advisory note.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/06/25/fashion/25love.html?ei=5087%0A&em=&en=9ca468cf8d0e20e5&ex=1168750800&pagewanted=all Sly article about a woman, while researching wild animal trainers, incorporating their methods to “train” her husband.
