Shot by the NY Times

"Should we issue a warning sir?"

"They've had their warning. No meetings. Fire."

"General Dyer, if you could have gotten the armored car into the square, would you have opened fire with the machine gun?"

"Well, yes. I suppose I would."

"What provision did you make for the wounded?"

"We were ready to help all who applied."

General Dyer, how does a child, shot with a .303 Lee-Enfield, apply for aid?"

Michelle Malkin links to Drudge. The NY Times is performing a "standard background check" on the adoption records of Judge Roberts' adopted children. If a conservative judicial nomination draws a "standard background check", what does everyone else receive? Sub-standard? Nominal? Premium? Ethyl?

Bill Borders, NYT senior editor, explains: "Our reporters made initial inquiries about the adoptions, as they did about many other aspects of his background. They did so with great care, understanding the sensitivity of the issue."

Mr. Borders, how does the New York Times, investigating a five year old child, exhibit great care and understanding?
