— Ace The liberals' favorite conjunction -- but, put to such good use in condemning terrorism but simultaneously apologizing for it -- finds itself working double-duty to undermine the powerfully favorable news on the economy the Times is sadly required to report.
Growth Accelerated in March, But a Slowdown Is Expected
And that's just the headline. "But," announced as an above-the-title star of the movie in the credit sequence, gives a powerful and moving performance throughout the piece, appearing in virtually every scene.
Related And Must-Read: Slapstick Politics looks at a different NYT piece -- loading all the bad stuf in the first paragraph, the one everyone reads, while only mentioning good stuff in the later paragraphs fewer people read -- and re-writes it the right way, with the lede ("economy growing like gangbusters") in the strange position of actually being the first paragraph. The lede is actually the lead, in other words.
Yeah, that's the ticket.
You also need to tighten up your tags a little there, ace.

Economists do this regularly. Greenspans zun-koan like pronouncements were full of buts I seem to remember.

The New York Times ought to be embarrassed by their lack of professional discipline.

It's like Roger Simon said - Who needs to pay extra for that NY Times service known called "Times Select," when you can read their opinion for free on the front page?

You're joking, right? The post-Clinton left has no shame and thus can't possibly be embarrassed.
