I couldn't agree more, Brendan. Calame is a declawed pussycat. It's heartbreaking to see the way the once-great New York Times has squandered its legacy. Oftentimes one reads it--and its interstices and lacunae--the way analysts used to read Pravda, as a guide to what's the current "line" and what's not fit to be discussed in public.
