"I don't believe in journalists having 'responsibility.'"
-Seth Lipsky, October 16, 2003

Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll demanded on August 20, 2003, that Washington "finish the war" against "the Arabs."

Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll assembled their staff for a Champagne toast to mass death on the commencement of hostilities against Iraq. Stoll called it "my war." CNN maintains a running update here of Americans killed in Ira's war.

On February 6, 2003, Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll wrote, in all seriousness, of a pending anti-war demonstration that the "the New York City police could do worse, in the end, than to allow the protest and send two witnesses along for each participant, with an eye toward preserving at least the possibility of an eventual treason prosecution."

The June 9, 1995 Wall Street Journal quoted an SEC complaint against New York Sun backer Bruce Kovner as saying Kovner had "altered and destroyed" subpoenaed evidence. We wish you'd do the same to the daily print run of your God-awful newspaper, Bruce.

Also, Professor G. Harlan Reynolds alleged on August 27, 2002 - when the Sun was several months in publication - that Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll had not yet paid him for a piece authored for their inaugural issue.

A big LFLS “Congratulations!” to Sun backer Bruce Kovner on hitting #111 on Forbes’ annual 400 Richest Americans list! At $1.8 billion, you’re only a measly $200 mil from making the double digits! (That’s only slightly more than Richard Grasso’s compensation!) We just know you’ll make it to the top 100 next year, Brucie! Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars!

From an idiotorial today, on Richard Grasso: “We’re not particularly shocked at $140 million in compensation at the end of a long career.”

This, from the cocksuckers who think schoolteachers are overpaid.

With usual LFLS story teller Quentin Robinson missing, it falls to me to present yet another episode of "Story Time with SethAndIra."

It seems that LFLS favorite Wild Bill Mauldin had drafted his police blotter one evening, duly submitting it to those above him in rank but below him in all other respects. This was apparently in the paper's earlier days, before ditched his trademark imbecilic front page stories about animals for front page stories by imbecilic animals. Anyway, Generalissimo Lipsky soon boiled over. That day's blotter noted the arrest of someone for torturing animals or something similar, and Lipsky, ever the advocate of humane treatment for lesser beats, demanded the beleaguered Mr. Mauldin "give me 1500 words tonight."

Of course, this is the same Seth Lipsky who gleefully ran an Alan Dershowitz SpEditorial upholding torture of humans.
