I don’t usually repost news stories, but there’s a lot of primo stuff in the Times today.
First, this: a piece about what happened to journalist Jane Mayer when she investigated the Koch brothers. I’m pleased to say I used to babysit for Jane Mayer back in the Jurassic and I’ve followed her career. Jane, you’ve made me proud!
Then this amazing story, about gay marriage in China. A same-sex couple is suing for the right to wed. In China!
And finally, this. is it for real, or just an enormous pr joke? Beat it, I say.
This may signal the death of satire.
Marge — you are so right.
Wow, SJ, I hope you did a lot of babysitting for a lot of aspiring journalists! I look forward to their integrity and tenacity on behalf of our society’s health.
