The Tim Watch: Scrambled Or Over Easy?

Geithner-NYT.jpg

What was the point juxtaposing this headline with this photo leading yesterday’s NYT Business Section?

Because Tim is obviously not running around with his hair on fire, the look of deliberation implies one of two opposite meanings: he’s either the picture of grace under fire, or he’s doing his best — sitting there all by his lonesome — to look unscrambled.

And then, what’s with the empty out box? In spite of the rather friendly article, it’s hard not to read this element as an editorial comment on the throughput of a skeleton crew.
