From a "think piece" in today's Times by Neil Genzlinger about the oversaturation of strip club scenes on TV shows:

First let me say that I yield to no man in my fondness for naked women. I have seen several in person, though none recently, and rank them right up there with a good sunset or a crisply turned double play on my list of things worth looking at.


How did that "though none recently" get past the editor?

What's wrong with "none"?

What editor? <_<

the people who flock to dine at the restaurant on account of its reputation/stars are getting their money's worth because what they are after is a piece of the reputation/stars and nothing else. their money is not wasted. -- mongo jones, 11/5/2014

Well, it's unfortunate for Neil Genzlinger (although I don't see why readers of the New York Times need to know that).

I am disappointed that my favorite Twitter feed hasn't picked this up yet:

GUYS, heterosexual men like looking at naked women, and the Times is ON IT.

Apparently, only as much as scenery or baseball, at least in the author's case. I think his priorities are a bit skewed, but maybe that's just me. :lol:
