Eyes Wide Shut

Last week, a superb NYT investigation pulled the curtain back on the shady details of a bad Everglades land deal. I guess the findings were so ugly that the Times editorial board (presumably, Robert Semple, Jr.) had to look away while writing this love letter in support of the deal.

I’d have grudging respect for the editorial if it at least acknowledged the investigative work of the two Times reporters who wrote last week’s blockbuster. Even more disappointing: Carl Hiaasen holds his nose and also can’t bring himself to mention the big Times scoop.
