Partisan newspapers used to incorporate party labels in their mastheads. 

So why doesn't the NYT, which obviously favors one branch of the ossified duopoly over the other one, rebadge itself as the New York Times-Democrat?

Then we'll have even more to celebrate when it goes bankrupt! ;-)

A credit downgrade is the best thing that could happen to this place.  Reality intrudes.

US cyber security chief quits

The head of the US body responsible for combating cyber-attacks has resigned unexpectedly following a string of online assaults on the CIA and other government agencies.

Randy Vickers, the director of the US computer emergency readiness team (CERT), stepped down on Friday, according to a Department of Homeland Security email obtained by the Reuters news agency.

According to Reuters, the email did not disclose any reason for Vickers's resignation. The Department of Homeland Security declined to comment. Vickers, director of CERT since 2009, will be temporarily replaced by deputy director Lee Rock.

Vickers's resignation follows a number of online attacks on government websites including the Senate, the CIA and the FBI. William Lynn, the US deputy defence secretary, revealed earlier this month that a foreign intelligence service had stolen up to 24,000 computer files from a Pentagon supplier in March – one of the largest successful cyber-attacks on a US government agency.
