The Times Are Not “Change”-ing

If you flip a coin you get heads 50% of the time. So, no matter what you guess you’ll be right half the time based on simple probability. It’s not an easy thing to be either consistently right or consistently wrong, but some people and institutions manage it.

Thers at Whiskey Fire notes that the Blight seems to believe that liberal blogtopia is having a hissy fit over the New York Times hiring Bill Kristol.

Sorry, can’t worked up about it. In many ways they are good fit, neither one matches the predictive capabilities of loose change.

Happy New Year Bryan

Thanks, Jams, but I have to put up with the locals blowing things up this evening.

I wish you a prosperous new year, as realize that you have a better probability, living in a sane part of the world.

The upside of the Times hiring Bill Kristol is a wider audience that’ll realize he’s insane crazy and terminally wrong about most everything. Shed light on the cockroaches and they tend to run away (well, maybe not the Florida ones).

And Judith Miller worked as a “news reporter” for how long after she became an acolyte of Laurie Mylroie? I don’t expect reality to enter into the picture for the NYT.
