Presence of Mind

Date posted on August 26, 2010

It’s nevertheless unconscionable, but I appreciate this. It really did exemplify the prodigious burden of self-restraint, which should only be traded for the most urgent of reasons. I wish they would’ve left out “in the absence of government presence of mind” though. While evidently true, the crux of the matter is, during the coverage, for reasons I wouldn’t have the temerity to declare on their behalf, self-censorship was overruled by lack of media presence of mind.
