Update: Falling profits and shrinking ads, sniff.


Laer Pearce at Cheat Seeking Missiles sends word that the Freakonomics blog at the NYTimes website is holding a contest to describe America in six words. Naturally, the game has degenerated into an America-bashing fest.


“White? Straight? Christian? Rich? Welcome Home!”

“‘Number One? Smells like number two.”

Laer is soliciting pro-America entries to balance out the nutroots submissions. Leave ’em at his blog.

Meantime, if you’d like to play a variation and describe the NYTimes in six words, let loose!

I’ll start:

All Leftist propaganda fit to print.

Our enemies’ favorite newspaper, hands down.

Apologize for Walter Duranty’s lies now!

How’s that stock chart doing, Pinch?
