Boring Gray Lady
Let's say you were asked to write about 800 words on why you no longer read the New York Times.
How would it come out in clean, crisp, and true, English words, such words that everyone would understand, if not agree with? The words used would have to smell both new and good. As each word was written it would seem as though you are seeing or hearing each for the first time, and combined they would "articulate sweet sounds together" (as Yeats said). Joseph Epstein
has done this as explains why he cancelled his subscription. True.
