Weather Report from The NT Times

David A. Andelman remembers what it was like to work with Abe Rosenthal at The New York Times and how he was impressed by Rosenthal's one word analysis of the cause of wars in the Third World.

I wonder if Rosenthal knew what an impression his comment would make. An off-hand remark becomes a summary of your geo-political knowledge? That's both amusing and frightening.

At least he didn't say, "Plastics."
