Spring Fling

"Like the authors ofThe Coming Insurrection, most of those observing... its publication...refused to identify themselves..."

Colin Moynihan, "Liberating Lipsticks and Lattes," The New York Times, June 16, 2009.

"'The book is important because it speaks to the total bankrupcy of pretty much everything,' one man said...'We're living in a high-end aesthetic with zero content'"

That sounds bad -- and no seeming way out. A perfect distraction for graduate students on a Sunday afternoon-- disturbing the material world. I bet it will catch on. But what is it?

"A few minutes later the cry was taken up again as the group moved into Starbucks..."
