Why The LAT Op/Ed Page Is Better Than The NYT Op/Ed Page

While the NYT bemoans “the relentless hagiography of the Catholic Church” in making Calcutta out to be a wasteland, the LAT runs a brilliant indictment of the global economy from the point of view of a Barbie’s plump rear end. The really delicious part is that the writer, Jennifer Tang, is based in New York.

(thank you, to the ever-more-readable Veronique de Turenne-helmed LA Observed for pointing out Tang’s piece today).
