I am grateful to your employee for so beautifully demonstrating in a single sentence so many of the reasons why The New York Times is a perennially bad newspaper.
Gore Vidal, in a letter to the editor that The New York Times wouldn’t publish. So he sent it to The New York Review of Books, since, as Vidal explains, “the outburst was occasioned by a piece first published in this paper.”
RIP Gore Vidal. Our favorite quotes here.
