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.
