A Call For Compassion
There has been a lot of unseemly giddiness among some of my fellow right-wing bloggers over the (non-Lileks) job loses over at the Star Tribune. While some of those losing their jobs have undoubtedly contributed to the Star Tribune’s steady decline, others losing their jobs are likely blameless.
If we refuse to be compassionate to all, we should at least have compassion for the more innocent victims. For example, there is no need to shed tears over the departure of Jim Boyd as deputy editorial page editor, but how about some thoughts and prayers for the now jobless team staffers who followed Boyd around to ensure that he wasn’t inadvertently exposed to any opinion that differed from his own?
