A Tale of Two Stories

A TALE OF TWO STORIES….Andrew Sabl notes two stories in the New York Times today:

One story potentially affects people with time on their hands and a penchant for political dissent. The other affects the kind of person who will finally have to give up his own apartment and become an inmate in a nursing home, or who will now have to choose between treating her diabetes and buying enough peanut butter for her toddler’s lunch.

Andrew suggests that the liberal blogosphere should spend more time on the second story and less on the first. I don’t think that’s going to happen, but he’s got a point.
