1) Is there any reason to respond to yet another fatuous Nick Kristof column which not only has to go back to the 70s and misstate facts in order to show that environmentalists are extremists, but tosses in meteorologists when he thinks no one's looking?
2) Is there any reason to respond to an even more fatuous David Brooks column which turns a dinner at Antoine's and the existence of decaffeinated coffee into a Lesson for Our Times?
Yes. Dude, I know it was on someone else's nickel, but you were in Nawlins and you ate at Antoine's? See anybody in there who wasn't obviously from out of town?
