It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen


Learned a new term, here, "stealth editing."

I knew that the Huff (and puffing) Post did it all the time, ever since Arianna left and Lydia Polgreen took over. But the Times? I don't know, call me naive, but despite everything I was still somewhat clinging to the notion that The Gray Lady was above such practices.

But then again, come to think of it, Lydia Polgreen used to be the editorial director of NYT Global at the New York Times.

So, the proverbial apple didn't fall too far from the tree, I guess.

As Oliver Emberton would NOT put it:

I kid Oliver Emberton.
