Oh, *that's* why the Times is crazy

I forgot it was founded by the leader of the Moonies!

But, I'm sure that doesn't influence the editorial side... let's see what they've got going on today in the staff editorial:

"Today marks the 33rd annual celebration of Earth Day. It's an important day to mark, although it must be remembered that the reason for the holiday is not to save the Earth per se — as if anyone could preserve a vast rock that is billions of years old — but rather to remind citizens to be good stewards during their short span on it."
OK, that's one of the most hilarious, nonsensical asides I've ever seen. Best opening sentence ever.

Later, the editorial calls for Congress to allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Happy Earth Day everyone!
