Strawberry fields forever. And ever. And ever.

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 10, 2003

"False reports from Iraq undermine confidence in government and media" runs Raymond Schroth's slughead. He means ours, not theirs.

[Lt. Gen. William Wallace] was acknowledging what others had felt for days: The stretched-out supply lines, the unexpected sand storms, the refusal of the citizens of Basra (which we had decided for a while to bypass) and Baghdad to welcome their would-be liberators with open arms, the Iraqi shift to guerrilla tactics, the slowness in setting up a second front in the North, and the rising toll of civilian dead in Baghdad where two missiles had smashed into marketplaces -- all suggested that perhaps the Pentagon had made some mistakes.

Cute, Father Ray.

Will the NCR's expert on media ethics set us an example of confidence-building candor? Will next week's column include an admission that morose delectation can cloud one's judgment as badly as jingoism? You make the call.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
