Unless they've buried it in the style section, Ohio's court decision and the PFAW filing are still no shows for a serious story in Sunday's New York Times.
(Remember the PFAW ebay celebrity auction starts today.)
But that doesn't mean it won't be covered by the Times. Remember last weekend (six days ago) when there was the horrible incident of six hunters killed in Wisconsin? Well the Friday burial of one of the six is the Times entry into a front page story on this incident that took place six days ago: "A Hunt Turns Tragic, and Two Cultures Collide."
So presumably from this and Dexter Filkins front page story last Sunday (see blog entry "It's Just Another Day, Another Episode") that detailed an incident that took place six days before it appeared in print, six days is the magic number. We just have to wait six days after the Ohio court decision for it to make the front page. Let's all start counting.
And to Rob who feels that the Times' public editor can't relate to individual readers or individual complaints, warning, he's devoting today's column to an issue raised by a 5,000 signature petition. Sadly, the petition isn't asking him to explain how outing a reader over a private e-mail to a reporter (not even to Okrent) is either ethical or fair. If I can ever finish the "Red" State series, I would like to address the issues Rob is raising regarding Okrent's "outing" of a Times' reader.
