Safire Resigns from New York Times Column
In yet another resignation, William Safire is stepping down from writing his political column in the New York Times. Apparently he will be replaced. In the meantime, there will be no shortage of Jewish NYT columnists, including Tom Friedman and David Brooks. But, that’s fine with me, because neither of them seems to be so wedded to the Zionist wing of Judaism as Safire. Safire’s columns often read to me as if they had been dictated from Tel Aviv or the Knesset in Jerusalem.
