NY Times Watch: "Oh No They Didn't" Edition
Desperation manifests itself in odd ways:
Did you guys read yesterday's "Styles" section story on the orgasmic-meditation cult in San Francisco? We did, and we're still not over it. There we were, having a nice Sunday afternoon. We innocently opened the paper with the expectation of reading a story about how rich people are coping with the recession, and instead we came face to face with this:He invited her to lie down unclothed, set a timer and, while stroking her, proceeded to narrate in tender detail the beauty he saw, the colors that went from coral, to deep rose, to pearlescent pink. “I just broke open, and the feeling was pure and clean,” Ms. Daedone said.
Did the Times just describe that woman's vagina to us? Let's read that again just to make sure.He invited her to lie down unclothed, set a timer and, while stroking her, proceeded to narrate in tender detail the beauty he saw, the colors that went from coral, to deep rose, to pearlescent pink.
I don't recognize the world anymore. There are no boundaries.

Why bother with the NY Times? If everyone stops reading it, it will go away. I keep myself pretty well informed with the financial publications and with the internet. Once in a while, NYT calls to ask us to subscribe--I guess we live in a target zip code for marketing--but I like to dig up my old Kentucky accent and say "....we cain't reeeed". Maybe they need to rely on smut to sell papers now. Why subject yourself to that?

This is, of course, precisely "how rich people are coping with the recession." Amusingly, the poor folks who want to ride it out on beer and cigarettes are the ones who will be paying the "sin taxes."
So, you know, be comforted: there are boundaries. Smoking cigarettes is bad.

What was the timer for?

To see if he lasted for sixteen minutes?

Circulation plummets. Everybody knows that sex sells. Putting -2 and +2 together, they hope for the best.
Anybody watched evening TV recently? I haven't for several years; last night I happened to be in a position to do so. I reminded me of my sainted grandmother. Cries of "O mercy, I didn't see that!!!!" echoed throughout the room. And not just once.
It was so disgusting I had to sit there for hours, despsing every minute.
And then the REALLY late-night TV came on.

Wait a minute. How do we know the guy was talking about her vagina when he "proceeded to narrate in tender detail the beauty he saw"? Maybe there was a Georgia O'Keefe painting on the wall and he was looking at that.

You, sir, are clearly not a Vaginal-American and therefore anything you say can and will be used against you ....

> There are no boundaries.
Naw, he was describing her ear.
Yeah. That's the ticket: Her ear.
