Luxury Porn

TNR has a great, snarky article about commodity fetishism in the New York Times Style section.
Wretched consumer excess may be the American way, but is it really the paper of record's business to lend it respectability? The disconnect is jarring enough that even "Thursday Styles" appears to be grappling with this question.
I confess that I like the silliness of that section and read it most Thursdays, but politically, it's probably yet another sign of the apocalypse. Don't be left behind! And remember, Diet Coke is for fat people.
