Oh Roger, Roger...

I am really starting to pity the man... sorry, I meant Roger Cohen of NYT. No matter what he is writing about, he remains a man who rarely misses an opportunity to miss a point. Here comes a recent example: August 13, 2011, Mr Cohen declares in his article The Age of Outrage:

Perhaps the society dealing best with these dilemmas is Germany. It has invested in a highly educated work force. It has matched workers’ skills to jobs. It has continued to make precision machinery others can’t make. [And several more sentences starting with "It..."].
And here we are, only three days later: Germany adds to eurozone crisis. Guess what it is about?

Regular as Swiss clockwork, our Roger. Read his article, bet on the opposite of what he says and sing all the way to the bank.
