So here’s a real dog-bites-man story: When the Rev. Jesse Jackson sat down in the row just ahead of me on yesterday’s connecting flight from Chicago to Las Vegas (where I am today), what does he read? Why, the editorial page of the New York Times, of course. I didn’t think anyone actually reads the house editorials of the Times, except for purposes of satire or clinical research, but there was Jesse assiduously reading the lead editorial deploring online ammunition sales.
But at least Jesse’s choice in cuisine is reassuring. Here’s his bag dinner, brought on board in preference to the first class meal United was offering (which wasn’t bad, by the way). Now, what would fast-food deploring liberals say?
