Too Good to Pass Up.

I really don't have anything substantive to add to this article at JustOneMinute regarding the new attitude of the New York Times with regard to the Valerie Plame affair. What has occurred in a rare moment of serendipity is the way the first paragraph of the linked post and another item seemed to mesh.

From JustOneMinute:

There is nothing like the prospect of an imminent hanging to concentrate the mind; apparently, the prospect of having one of their reporters go to jail for eighteen months has concentrated the minds of the NY Times editors on the legal subtleties of the Valerie Plame leak investigation.

And from Terry Pratchett's forthcoming new novel, Going Postal:

They say that the prospect of being hanged in the morning concentrates a man's mind wonderfully; unfortunately, what the mind inevitably concentrates on is that, in the morning, it is in a body that is going to be hanged.

Like I said, nothing substantive, but I thought it was funny.
