It took the New York Times four days to come up with this limp editorial in the lead position on the edit page. I guess they were having a hard time thinking of something to say to cast Friday’s Microsoft decision in a negative light, obviously disappointed that judge Colleen Kollar-Kettely had done something less than impale Bill Gates’ head on spike. The weightiest pronouncement on the subject that the Grey Lady could muster was to wag its finger at Microsoft and tut-tut that “the company would be well advised to abide by the spirit, and not just the letter, of the settlement.” The “spirit” being… what exactly? The judgment that the court did not render? The punishments it did not impose? It’s just the Times trying to pretend that even though it lost this round in the war on capitalism, it really won. In “spirit” you know.
