First, the Catholic Church. Now, the Grey Lady

Being a firm believer in the superstition that bad things always come in threes, I would like to start a pool to bet on what will be the third trusted cultural institution to implode in a dramatic and messy way. Said institution has to be trusted to be *good*, of course, so no fair nominating icons of evil like the New York Yankees [ducking]. So what will it be? “Julia Child Busted in Duck a l’Orange” Scandal? “Pavarotti Caught in Karaoke Scam”? “Dick Van Dyke Confesses: I Always Hated Mary Tyler Moore and I’m Glad I Killed Her!” “US Marines Surrender to French Forces”. Feel free to posit your own scandal.
