History NY Times style

Contained in an article about why trusting in the NJ state government (especially when a dirtball named McGreevey is governor) to carry out a massive building project in conjunction with local officials is never a good idea, is this gem that points out why you can never quite trust the NYT as a paper of record:

In the early 1990's, gangs and crack began to seep into Newark.

Funny, I must have been severly mistaken when I noticed, from casual car and train rides through the city, a teeming river of crack-fueled gang activity as far back as the mid-eighties.
