YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Quite a few readers say that it's probably lefties, or more specifically Anarchist / antiglobo types, spraypainting the Times. I guess that makes sense -- such disrespect for private property is their hallmark, after all. I guess that's why it didn't cross my mind that InstaPundit readers might do that.
MORE: On the other hand, maybe it's not anarchists, as reader Kipp Mohr sends this email:
It was my picture that you posted today of the graffiti of the New York Times today, and I just wanted to thank you for doing so.
I took it at the Medical Center stop on the red line of the DC Metro while I was visiting Sgt. Laven across the street at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. I can only assume it was one of the families or friends of a soldier wounded or killed in battle that attempted to deface a paper that has shown so little respect for their loved ones' efforts and valient bravery. The only improvement in the effort I would've make would be to cut out the middle-man--spray it right across Ted Kennedy's face!
Needless to say, InstaPundit does not approve of spray-painting Senators.
