No news is good news. Seriously, go to nytimes.com—it’s a totally blank page. Nice for a change, huh? But not because nothing happened; it’s because their site was hacked. Which they should be reporting on, so it’s ironic that—ah, look, they’re filling in the gap with an outpouring of reporting on Twitter. And now the site’s back up. Phew. And according to their front-page story, looks like the hackers have exposed the credit-card info of 70 million Americans. Great, now I have to get new numbers for all my cards. Thanks a lot, nytimes.com.
