Selling Them The Rope

Jeff Goldstein thinks the International Herald Tribune (owned by the New York Times) might be taking entrepreneurialism a wee bit too far when it starts accepting ads “seeking bids from corporations willing to build nuclear reactors for Iran.” He also sees some incongruity in their willingness to do that while inveighing against running the infamous Danish Muhammad cartoons.

Well, sure, if you want to get technical about it. But I would remind Jeff of the old adage that a foolishly consistent, small minded hobgoblin and his money are soon parted. Or something like that.
