Rashomon

It doesn’t take the great Tenno Kurosawa to tell us that we all see our own special version of the truth. I used to be one of those who trusted The New York Times to adjudicate it for me. O les beaux jours – those halcyon days will probably never return. Thinking for myself can be wearisome sometimes, I have to admit.

But over in Iraq now, Greyhawk is doing some thinking for himself. He gives us a compare and contrast between the NYT’s and the Washington Times’ vision of Marine attitudes there toward the election. As you recall, we’re not supposed to trust the Washington Times because “they are owned by the Moonies.” I’ll keep that in mind. Who owns Greyhwawk, btw, has anybody asked him? Oh, he owns himself.
