Today’s Headlines

 

  • Yeah, I totally did not understand that last article from the City section of th NYT. What was the point? In one part it depicted the dire for ease and convenience that a car represents to newly affluent people, but then in another part shows the natural affinity between the automobile and rampant sociopathy. I was left at the end of the article confused and bewildered by the point of it all. Was this a poorly designed meditation on the duality of man?

    Also, why no mention of traffic in Hell’s Kitchen around 6pm. It’s usually pretty damn awful at that time.

    Well, it was an excerpt from a memoir. So I guess you could call it reflections on the car, before and after using one.

    This story is essentially meaningless without ajdusting past prices for inflation.
