Another weird Brooksism

David Brooks of the New York Times begins his column today with this: “As a colleague of mine says, every crisis is an opportunity.” A colleague of his? If you Google the phrase “every crisis is an opportunity,” you’ll get 466 hits. Not exactly something he needed to attribute, never mind to an unnamed source. Then again, he didn’t have to tell us he’d never met Judge Michael McConnell, as he did a couple of months ago. Think, David, think.
