NEW YORK (AP) — New York Times columnist David Brooks has become a target of online criticism over an opinion piece in which he describes taking a friend with only a high school degree to a Mexican restaurant after she appears anxious with his first choice, a gourmet eatery, and wants to leave.
For sheer hilarity and hyperbole it's hard to beat a recent headline on a Washington Post editorial opposing President Trump's decision to remove the U.S. from the nonbinding and unenforceable Paris climate agreement.
