The New York Times: not just for deranged morons like Paul Krugman and Thomas Friedman

This column was full of so much common sense that I was shocked that it came from the New York Times:
My experience, purely anecdotal, is that the more rangers try to bring the nanny state to public lands, the more careless, and dependent, people become. There will always be steep cliffs, deep water, and ornery and unpredictable animals in that messy part of the national habitat not crossed by climate-controlled malls and processed-food emporiums. If people expect a grizzly bear to be benign, or think a glacier is just another variant of a theme park slide, it’s not the fault of the government when something goes fatally wrong.

Expect columnist Timothy Egan to be turfed at the NYT long before former Enron adviser Paul Krugman or totalitarian-China-sycophant Thomas Friedman.
