We are all, every day, becoming more and more like ourselves. But some days it seems we're more like ourselves than usual!
If, for example, you ever doubted the silver tongue of pundit David Brooks (left) was disguising an envious sneer, read this. (Also note someone in the comments points out Brooks plagiarized his best lines from Woody Allen.)
Likewise, to fully understand the clever vapidity of Globe reviewer Wesley Morris - and the strange belief of his generation that entertainment always trumps politics - read this.
And afterwards, for the cherry on this little journalistic sundae, be sure and check out Geoff Edgers's po-faced take on the demise of Snappy Dance Theater. Sometimes, I admit, I can't decide whether Edgers is a blank slate or some kind of genius. He even goes to the Boston Foundation's evil anti-funding queen Ann McQueen for a quote! Peerlessly hypocritical, McQueen affects sudden grief at the kind of outcome she herself was calling for not six months ago. Odd that she should have changed her tune, when nobody else has!
