On the Opinion Page: May 15, 2008
In which The Gay Recluse scores selected opinions in The Times.
Nicholas Kristof/The Terrified Monks
The Short Version: Friends! Behold the Indiana Jones of opinion page!
In his words: “I sneaked through these Tibetan areas in Gansu and Qinghai Provinces, eluding the troops by taking a local car with curtains pulled over the windows.”
Score: D (Depressing)
We feel bad for anyone living under a politically oppressive regime, but we never get the sense that Kristof is in this for anyone but himself.
Gail Collins/A Victory Plan for Hillary
The Short Version: Hillary…ha.
In her words: “Hillary’s tendency to describe herself and her supporters as “hard-working” is getting a little irritating.”
The Score: B- (Blah)
There’s a cloud of malaise hovering over this column that makes us look forward ton the general election.
