In Which The Good Grey Lady Drops All Decorum

I know that this happened on Saturday, but the hard copy of the printed paper has been sitting on my kitchen table since then, and I want to record this for posterity.

If you embiggen that so that you can read it, you will see that the lead story on the front page of the New York Times on Saturday, October 8, 2016 prints the words bitch, pussy, fuck and tits.

This is two of George Carlin's Seven Dirty Words and newspaper journalists of a certain age have collapsed into puddles of ectoplasm and/or rolled over in their graves.

We may have actually reached the end of Western civilization as we have known it.

If you haven't figured it out, I'm With Her, and the orange man must never become President.

If this is what he's capable of doing to the New York Times, I shudder to think of what he would do to this country.

OMG, I so whole heartedly agree! Everything about him insults my sensibilities. I knew I would not vote for him from day one. How on earth he made it this far is beyond me. BTW, I read the NYT here in Michigan. Best paper in the world, but such language! I think the Donalds lack of decency and restraint has spread like a disease across the land and unfortunately onto the pages of the NYT. Love your musings Miss Magpie=)
