sex, slumming, soup and Bill O'Reilly
Oh wait, now I remember why I stopped reading the piece: "I never saw Nassau County, Long Island, where O'Reilly, who is fifty six grew up, in the nineteen sixties, but I'm guessing that restaurants so unpretentious that they wouldn't serve a soup-of-the-day didn't actually exist." (34) Wha? I'M guessing that's a triple negative and that Lemann thinks that they did, after all, serve the soup in the nineteen sixties. But who the hell knows?
