“The Normal”/by David Brooks (TIMES, 3/1/11)


How can a journalist with Brooks’ experience believe that in the USA “the sacrifice” would ever be “spread widely and fairly”? From all the articles of his that  I’ve read, I doubt he even understands the meaning of “fairly.”

“Trim from the old to invest in the young.” Euthanasia rationalized as aid to youth!

When did Republicans ever direct their budget cuts to items they could “easily reach”? Military expenditures glare at them but they remain untouched, even in the case of the unnecessary war in Iraq.

  When the arrogant Brooks predicts that “the future has no union,” he has no idea how provocative he is being.

Rest assured, you media pipsqueak, we can use this very column as an organizing tool.
