Overinformed Uncles and Other Patres Familias
George Packer (who may or may not have a tattoo of David Brooks on his back) held my interest but I began to wonder somewhere along the line exactly what percentage of the essay was quotes from Brooks. A large percentage, anyway.
On a more personal note, I firmly believe that the NYT was baiting me with that minute by minute parenting article (and the insane piano photo) on the front page. I don't care how many days they leave it up there, I will not read it. But exactly how stupid is it? You tell me.
