My favorite Times critic (Gawker) offers some free sensitivity training for for copy editors:
The Times might win the award for "most cavalier context-giving reference to poverty in an artsy feature" for today's article: "The South Bronx is still no paradise, as any housing project resident or child asthma sufferer will tell you. But on a recent evening wine glasses and Corona bottles clinked and ties were loosened at the G-Bar as patrons heard the jazz repertory of 22-year-old Jennifer Jade Ledesna..." I certainly hope all those asthmatic children enjoy smooth jazz stylings.
See for yourself: In the South Bronx, the Arts Beckon
