The mighty have fallen


I can't believe I saw this link to an online feature in The New York Times. It makes me feel a little sick:

Bieber’s Bad Behavior
Has the pop star met the standard for deportation or should visitors be forgiven for lesser crimes?


I expect less from the Times. Less of this kind of nonsense, that is.

I didn't even understand the angle here, because I didn't know Bieber was Canadian. Oddly, when I popped over to do a google search to find out, I typed in, "Is Bieber..." and google offered me some prefilled choices, one that said, "...circumcised." Seriously, is that a common google search?

I asked the Magic 8 ball, and it told me, "Concentrate and ask again," which was, of course, impossible.

Yuck. Can we deport the NYT?

I like the Times, I really do—but I also hoped they would ignore all things Bieber. "All the news that's fit to print," after all.
