Not because they’ve created another angel in heaven, but because today is William Kristol’s last column for The New York Times. It’s almost as much of a relief as the day when the Financial Times got rid of Amity Shlaes.
Now, when is the Times going to sack Ben Stein? And when will the axe fall at the FT on Tyler Brulé? I’m one of the diminishing band of people who pay with their own money for delivery of these papers in physical form every day. But some of the content does make me gnash my teeth with regularity.
