At least, a gun in the hand of a New York Times editor seems like a dangerous thing given his propensity for aiming his mouth in one direction and shooting himself in the foot as a result.
What Bill Keller doesn't know, apparently, could fill up an entire op-ed piece. Or a newsroom.The NYT editorial that inspired the above is here. I still think it would be good for Mr. Keller to get out of New York and see how the rest of the country lives for a while. Perhaps his inventory of persons of hay is too large to justify such an adventure.
