Question: When is an Arab not an Arab?

Answer: When its a story in the New York Times.

I used to have a ritual of buying the Sunday Times, but the reporting has gotten so bad (more here) that I can’t even do that anymore. Sure, there are still some good reporters working there — it is a large organization. But I would rather not have to spend my Sunday separating the wheat from the chafe. It is much more efficient to let the blogsphere do it for me, even if it means I spend Sunday morning at the computer instead of on the couch.

UPDATE: As T.F. points out in the comments, the NY Times made ammends for the faulty headline. But Body and Soul points us to this analysis in Slate, which makes it clear that much more is wrong with this article than just the headline.
