Mood of the Nation--Per the

Mood of the Nation--Per the New York Times

The NYT continues to clumsily link the Columbia tragedy to its daily drumbeat of anti-war-in-Iraq stories. The latest manifestion comes under the guise of a "man in the street" interview with a Motorola engineer who states to the NYT reporter: "What happened yesterday further reinforces my belief that we should find diplomatic solutions instead of threatening other countries with invasion," Jason Rapps, an engineer with Motorola, said as he left a supermarket in Coral Springs, Fla."The loss of the space shuttle should at the very least make us stop and think about thrusting ourselves into a conflict that will only make world relations worse, not better," Mr. Rapps said.

Get a grip, Mr. Raines (executive editor of the NYT for those a bit removed from the Manhattan-media scene). This is getting embarrasing. We will all start boycotting the Washington Post-less Trib, over here. And this may be a bit of stretch, but even the URL for the Internet article ends with "03WAR.html". Wait, I thought this was an article about the Columbia disaster? Or maybe it's the third in a series purposefully linking the Columbia to Iraq?
