The Village Times



Bill Keller



Few have worked harder to restore sanity to the Left than Bill Keller, former Executive Editor of the New York Times. Though he has left the Times to pursue other ventures, he will continue to offer his take on the issues of the day—especially the Left's dangerous naivete on foreign affairs and the irrationality of the pitchfork-wielding mob that wants to tax the rich.
