Department of no shit.

Do you ever get the feeling that the Times's New York lifestyle reporters just moved here? There's a perpetual wide-eyed astonishment that I never fully understand, like, "Can you believe it? Some people have to compromise on their apartments because they can only afford a certain amount." Are these stories always written by the summer intern?

...Meanwhile, the pressing concerns of a slightly different demographic are better understood.

    Where else can I turn for updates on the state of renovations of Yale's Trumbull College dining hall? This is fit to print, my friend.

    I was going to do a media critique of a long Metro cover article in the Times about a class project at Yale (about the interesting subject of Red Hook redevelopment designs, but seriously, all it was was a class project), but then I realized:

    That would just be part of the problem.

    The Times's Yale obsession is particularly baffling in light of the fact that USNews-#1-rated Princeton is about 50 percent closer. Where are the stories on Princeton remodeling, huh? Where's the journalistic balance?

    And Dartmouth! You liberal NYC media elites always forget about Dartmouth! It's a vast left-wing conspiracy.

    I wish they would have a throw down between the Columbia J-schoolers and the Yale J-schoolers at the NYTimes for a new Times blog they can call esotericist. Maybe in pudding baked by Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

    Hahaha that would ispire me to actually subscribe to Times Select!

    Really? It's giving me naked-party flashbacks, and those just weren't pretty.
