The Line Between Fantasy and Reality

22 Jan

..gets thinner.  You guys remember that fake New York Times that got put up a few months ago?  It had headlines like “Iraq War Ends,” and “Nation Sets its Sites on Sane Economy?”  Well, I gotta say, reading the actual New York Times these days feels sort of like reading that (wonderful) fake one. It’s kind of disorienting.

Some comparisons.  Here’s a screen-grab from today’s Times:

real-new-york-times

…and here’s the wishful-thinking version:

dream-nyt

Or take these two.  Not real:

fake-nyt-2

and ACTUALLY REAL, even the part about Al Gore:

real-nyt-2

It’s going to take a while for all of this to sink in.
