Glen Reynolds provided a link to an excellent Fisking by Don Surber of the NYT's pathetic editorial on Haditha. (In order to fully appreciate the editorial you must picture Keller and Junior huddled together under pictures of Kerry lying to the Fulbright committee as they strive to revive the corpse of the VVAW.)
That's not the serendipitous occurrence. Immediately below Surber's piece on the Time's excrescence is a piece dissecting Robert Reich's grasp of relatively simple math in his assertions concerning death taxes. That was not serendipitous either but as I had been pondering the rot at our most prestigious institutions of higher education earlier this morning, Surber's link to a blog written by Harvard economics professor Greg Mankiw was definitely a welcome chance encounter. To find that Mankiw is teaching economics at the entry level from a dynamic scoring (as opposed to static scoring) perspective was refreshing.
A Harvard professor teaching students why Reich and DeLong deserve to be examined with rigor (and ridicule) is a very good sign.
