This is a great article by Michael Kinsley posted this afternoon. From characterizing the LA Times as ‘formerly great’ and ‘squeezed into irrelevance,’ to the awesome use of ‘jeremiad’ (twice), Kinsley is brilliant.

Or, he says, continue reading newspapers and don’t participate. You’ll just be the control group.
