From the Dept. of Military Intelligence

I hate New York Times headlines. I hate them with a passion. I know hate is a strong word, but have you seen the junk they throw up there?

Anyway, I'd like to point out this gem from today's paper:

After Bell, Critics Want Mayor to Broaden Focus on Police
Somehow the mayor is able to broaden his focus. Amazing! Once you broaden your vision, though, YOU'RE NO LONGER FOCUSING! It reminds me of the sign I pass in Boston every day advertising "self-guided tours." The act of "guiding" implies that someone else is leading me through the museum. I'm able to get from the train station to the office every day by myself, but I wouldn't say I guided myself into the building.

OK, my brain hurts now. Make it stop.
