Journalists in Glass Houses really should refrain from casting stones

I'd ask if they have no shame, but we all know the answer to that.

Ah the Schadenfreude!

First, the stone which was cast:

David Carr: "If it's Kansas, Missouri, no big deal. You know, that's the dance of the low-sloping foreheads. The middle places, right? [pause] Did I just say that aloud?"

Crack-heads writing for the Tired Gray Crone should think before casting such aspersions:

Every addict is formed in the crucible of the memory of that first hit. Even as the available endorphins attenuate, the memory is right there. By 1985, I tried freebasing coke and its more prosaic sibling, crack.

"Crackhead" is an embarrassing line item to have on a résumé. If meth tweakers had not come along and made a grab for the crown -- meth makes you crazy and toothless -- crackheads would be at the bottom of the junkie org chart. In the beginning, smokable cocaine fills you with childlike wonder, a feeling that the carnival had come to town and chosen your cranium as the venue for its next show. There is only one thing that appeals after a hit of crack, and it is not a brisk walk around the block to clear one's head. Most people who sample it get a sense of its lurid ambush and walk away.

Many years later, my pal Donald sat in a cabin in Newport, Minn., staring into a video camera I had brought and recalling the crackhead version of me.

I'll take those folks from flyover country with the alleged "low-sloping foreheads" over a crack head any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Aside: The New York Times is now known to hire illegal aliens and crackheads. Just sayin'.

The alleged Paper of Record is the Paper With a Record.

I guess that's what it takes to be a member of the liberal elite, a brain fried on drugs.

Look at it this way: If this ignorant tool wasn't working for the MSM he'd be collecting social security disability because he's clearly too mentally disabled to do anything else.

jim m,



Well, one of them anyhow.

Don't forget their tendency to reimburse for expenses around the corner for 'writers' that are supposed to be hundreds of miles away filing stories.

A crack head is a dope fiend that doesn't have the initiative to cook his own meth.

Carr's remarks are not surprising.

What is surprising is that he's stupid enough to say it out loud.

And that "low-sloping foreheads" remark really does sum up everything you need to know about liberalism and so-called progressive policies.

They loathe a large portion of the american population, their own.
