New York Times egregiously misuses pronoun

There's been a cover-up at the New York Times!

I cannot link to this article, believe it or not! It is not in the NYT index, and
no wonder:

New Jersey's summer officially began on Tuesday, causing we at the Jersey column to wonder....

At that point, both the librarian and the English major in me started to scream, and searched for the link.

Didn't find it. i'm not surprised.

The article is by Neil Genzlinger, in today's (June 26, 2005) Times. Of course it's only the New Jersey section, and we in New Jersey are presumed to be either dolts or gangsters. Anything is good enough for us!

But I knew how to use a pronoun when I was 10--and I wasn't the smartest kid in the class either.
