    In Which NTodd Says His Peace

My Protest Worked!

Clearly changing my blog's name to The NTodd Times really got The NYTimes' attention according to CalPundit:

Yesterday the Times withdrew its objection and sent Cox the following email:

Thank you for responding to our complaint. By adding the bold-faced disclaimer at the top of the faux Columnist Corrections Page, you are no longer confusing readers and as a result of this change, we agree that the page is now a parody which is protected under the First Amendment. We are copying Verio on this e-mail in order to inform them that we no longer have any objections to your site.

...I got an email from their new Public Editor (or, rather, from "The Office of the Public Editor") telling me about their change of heart. Presumably they sent this email to anyone who blogged about this...

Okay, so my lark actually meant nothing, nor did I get an e-mail from the Times. Sigh. Well, at least the right thing happened (note the passive voice).
