George and Laura Split!

The Globe seems to think so anyway. Will the New York Times write about the marriage of the current White House occupants? Frankly, I don't care about the state of the Bush marriage, but if the Times is going to use 2,000 words worth of newsprint to tell us how often Bill and Hillary see each other, they can tell us that George and Laura may not be speaking and that he may be hitting the bottle once again. Actually, I never thought that he ever stopped drinking, but that is another story.

Thanks to Media Matters for the scoop. At times like this I am reminded of the running joke in the Men in Black movies. The New York Times can't be trusted, but the tabloids can.
