When John Tierney wrote a cover story for the New York Times Magazine titled
"Recycling Is Garbage," the reaction was fierce.
One critic sent him a box filled with garbage.
The 51-year-old reporter will have a prime opportunity to keep stirring things up after being named yesterday to the newspaper's op-ed page, succeeding William Safire as a columnist. A self-described libertarian, Tierney has mused about the privatization of Central Park (complete with turnstiles) and attacked commuter rail under the headline: "Amtrak Must Die."
I can't wait.
