Perhaps he should act like he does: According to Nexis, Richard Oppel has been writing for the New York Times since 1999.
Isn't it time he learned the values of the newspaper which employs him?
We refer to this morning's hard-copy news report, "Saturated Midwest States Brace for Blinding Blizzard." Oppel describes an "unusually powerful storm" which could drop "as much as two feet of snow" on storm-ravaged parts of the midwest.
We have no complaint with what Oppel wrote about this eastward-tracking storm. We're only puzzled by what he left out.
Inexplicably, Oppel failed to discuss the one location which actually matters. How powerful will this snowstorm be by the time it hits the Yale campus?
Family fun: According to the leading authority on such matters, "Oppel's sister, Shelby Oppel Wood, is an education reporter at The Oregonian newspaper."
Any chance the Times could get her to move east in the wake of this powerful storm? Shapiro and Gay could head to Portland in the trade, with the entire Knicks roster thrown in.
