I take back every single time made fun of the New York Times in the past. I take it all back because of one single quote from the piece on The New Inquiry:

“Tim Barker, a junior at Columbia, awkwardly admitted that he, too, had chosen a reading from Debord. (What are the odds?)”

What are the odds that two dudes hanging out in a secret bookstore would both be looking to read a little Guy Debord, that a New York Times reporter would be there for it, and it would record the moment in a manner that usurped ” a bomb was thrown at their motor car. The Archduke pushed it off with his arm,” as the best thing I’ve ever seen in the pages of the Old Gray Lady?
