Is Glenn Garvin Now Editing the New York Times?



We've seen what happens when Glenn Garvin takes over an entire newspaper.

But Garvin's appetite, not sated, has apparently led him to edit stories for the Grey Lady herself.

How else to explain this whopper from an otherwise superlative article on the foreclosure mills that infest our state:
In an interview last month, Mr. Stern, the Florida lawyer, accused Mr. McCollum, who is standing for re-election as attorney general, of political motives in opening the inquiry into his firm and others.
Come home Glenn, we're sorry, you were right about Nixon and the Half Hour New Hour, just come on home.....

  1. Being twice-divorced does matter; not because it means she has broken the Bilblical covenant of not having two different penises inside of her, but because it is a vignette into someone's judgment. This someone's judgment is the same person who now proposes to be the next attorney general, the chief legal officer in the state, in whose judgment we will rely upon and be affected by for the next four years.

    Assuming that no one enters into a marriage hoping that it will end in a divorce (unless done for immigration purposes), a divorce is a failure (at least contractual) between two people. A failure caused by the groom, the bride, the circumstances, the situation, a bad night, on and on, but a failure no doubt.

    I am divorced. My marriage failed. I was the wrong guy for the wrong girl at the wrong place at the wrong time....We collectively failed! I do not wish to get married again, I do not wish to find myself in the middle of a divorce again, ever. If I get divorced for a second time I will consider having failed for the second time, and, this I would not take very well. I do not wish to be like my uncle who is working on his sixth marriage.

    In today's society, being divorce is not such a black eye. Maybe you were young, broke, hopelessly in love, you got married and then you figured out your mistake and you got divorced. No biggie, society has a mechanism for you to dissolve the contract and help you move on. In today's America, one divorce is like your first speeding ticket- you take a class and don't get any points on your license. It is like PTI in the dating world.

    I propose that a second divorce means something else. Before the second divoce you participate in the second marriage. You exchanged vows, maybe not in a church, but promises are exchanged no doubt. Failing in this endevour for the second time means something; it does not mean nothing!

    It either means your judgment in partners is no good, you are no good as a partner, you don't take the institution of marriage seriously, or whatever, but it means something. Being twice-divorced means you don't qualify for PTI, you don't get a free mea culpa, you don't get a "you only live once" shrug.

    I don't care how many _____ Pam Bondi has known. I don't care what she does in her spare time, how many boyfriends she has had. However, once she contractually obligates herself in a relationship through the law for the second time and this fails, it tells me something is amiss. Her judgment is faulty in one way or another, and this faukty judgment is what she will rely upon while being the chief law enforcement officer in the state.

    Pam Bondi does not deserve to fail for the first time as attorney general.

    Vote for Dan Gelber, (he is not divorced, just kidding)

  4. The modern, tea party-inflected conservative movement is based on a few core principles. Global warming is a hoax. Income inequality hasn't been growing. Tax cuts don't increase the deficit. America has the best healthcare in the world. Evolution is a myth. The economy is weak because of regulatory uncertainty. Barack Obama is a socialist.

    I'm trying to think of another successful political movement in history based on so many objectively fantastical beliefs.
