Wow The New York

Wow! The New York Times has a big scoop today. Tom Ridge is so out of the loop that he wasn’t even consulted when the Pentagon decided to stop combat air patrols over New York and Washington, DC.

Well, okay, maybe not a scoop exactly, since Salon.com broke this story in late March. Hell, you can even see it in the free first few paragraphs of the piece. You don’t even have to buy Salon Premium.

I guess working in the bosom of the Grey Lady means never having to say ‘as first reported by.’

I’ll have to make a note of that.
