A month or two ago, I criticized them for seeming to drift to the left. Still good, but not as great as they once were, was my appraisal.
I’m coming around the view that they were just having a bad stretch. Maybe lefty treacle sprout like algae plumes every now and then and ALD — which kind of serves as water filtration plant for intellectual currents — simply reflected that for a little while. Or perhaps the unbridled power of the Corner’s admonishments forced them to change their ways! Who knows? But it’s been pretty good lately.
