Foreign reports in the New York Times could as well be works of fiction, but I found a couple of recent articles to be interesting nonetheless. , . Interesting in a very dark sense. I am trying to figure, how the system got to the point where it is and how it manages to operate against such obvious motivations. With a carrot and stick of reputation it is claimed. How lame can that be? Seriously! There has to be something more tangible than that at work; which, I am sure, will never show up on the pages of the New York Times, ever.
