Carrot and stick

I’ve been meaning to post something about this expression for weeks now. But Sunday’s installment of That’s What They Say (Michigan Radio) no longer makes that necessary: “Sometimes all it takes is a carrot, except when it also takes a stick.”

[Stefan, this post is for you.]

Thanks, Michael. I feel bad now for writing and deleting a comment on the Maggie Haberman post. I'll re-say it here: I get pretty mad at the NYT sometimes too, but I always end up asking myself what might be an improvement. I need to read a newspaper. I try to read several. But the Times at its worse seems superior to others' best efforts. I am open to suggestions.

I have digital subscriptions for both the Times and the Washington Post. But the Times has much more cultural stuff that interests me. I think I’m condemned to stick with both.
