Rumor has it that David Brooks and Paul Krugman have been having quite a long series of disagreements with each other, but NYT editorial policy and Serious Grownup Writer etiquette prohibit them from naming names.

So instead we get the curious phenomenon of New York Magazine offering a gloss of Krugman’s rebuttal to Brook’s case that Freddie Gray died of moral failure, when it would be far simpler to just write that David Brooks is a festering toolbag. Which of course, NY Mag is hardly the first to point out.

I can’t bring myself to read Brook’s column here, to be honest. There are so many things I would rather do. Like read the comments section on a Boston Herald article about diversity in local police forces. Seriously, you’d probably learn more there.
