The paper of record is silent

I admit, Dear Reader, this blog has been awfully quiet of late.  That being said, the Vega is roused from its slumber by the New York Times opinion pages today on this, the 10th anniversary of our worst unforced error.  The New York Times was complicit in the days leading up to the war -- Judith Miller sucking at the teat of Dick Cheney's and Scooter Libby's stovepiped bullshit merely the most obvious example.  And yet, wow, wow, wow...not a word in today's op ed pages about the Times' abetting the march towards a war of (poor) choice is truly astonishing.

And yes, especially, wow.

The Times changing its slogan from "All the news that's fit to print," to "Suck on this," is sad enough.  Not recognizing it on such an obvious event as the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and all the death and misery that was to follow is just cowardly.
