Pete Karman wrote the first Karman Turn column for IN THESE TIMES in 1977. Over the years it morphed into the ITT Ideologist before it petered out. It has since petered back in as a blog. That’s because one thing the world desperately needs is another blog. And if he is going to lie around the house, Karman might as well lie around the world at no extra cost. Since starting as a copy boy in 1957 at Hearst’s trashy but colorful New York Mirror, he has had no future in journalism.
