After key members of the lunatic right's internet force took to the binary world this weekend to launch their attack on the New York Times Travel Section for publishing an article talking about St. Michaels, Md. last week, things have gotten ugly.
Glenn Greenwald has been all over this story. From their original claims that the New York Times has engaged in some "murderous plot" to their attempts to ascertain personal information of Times personnel, the right has once again made a bunch of noise out of nothing.
